Website Configurator Farce

Anybody on here tried to configure a new 500 on the official website lately?

I've tried on four separate occasions over the course of the weekend only to be met with a 'Loading' cycle which must be the nearest thing to perpetual motion I have ever come across.

Forget the pointless 500 related anecdotes whilst we wait FIAT......let us configure the bl**dy cars please!

Or is this a subtle hint from the manufacturer about possible protracted waiting times?

In any case I lost the will to live after the last attempt - if I fancy one I'll just take my preferred spec. list into the dealer and make the salesman work for a living.

Re: Website Configurator Farce

I am trying fiat500.ie too
The new irish version
Its hopeless too.

Anyone got to this irish site yet?
If so are they doing any different colours for irish customers than for us mainland UK or diffferent options or cheaper priced options?

When car supermarkets start selling 500s at a discount they sometimes get cars from ireland which the irish dealers dont want.

Re: Website Configurator Farce

Are we talking about this configurator http://www.fiat.co.uk/Showroom/#show...0/configurator or the 500 Wants You video configurator.

The Fiat.co.uk one works for me everytime, never had a problem with it.
