That is nice, but considering how good the standard Alfa and Fiat sites are I just would have expected more

I know, it's the same with the adverts on TV, the MiTo one is cr**! It's just some publicity pics, some vector icons and some stupid music a really poor effort, even compared to the New Ka advert!!!

Re: Abarth configurator ?

To be honest I'm quite surprised Fiat/Abarth UK have not got the finger out and provide UK customers with an online configurator. As going into the dealer and spec'ing the car would not be the best Idea for me as I couldn't see the finished article. Fair enough you have the Italian one but surely it wouldn't take that long to create one for the UK? and the Abarth UK site is a bit poor to be honest.

Re: Abarth configurator ?

Has anyone tried any other manufacturers configurators tho? they are uniformly pants from the ones ive seen. A tiny little picture of a car that changes colour, thats about it. I think we are all spoilt with the Fiat 500 configurator to be honest!

I liked the Italian site. It was good to see the little car without the stripes. If I had the money I'd get one. There, I've said it.

The configurator is more or less the same across the Fiat range. It's also pretty much the same for Alfa's too.

Thumbs up Re: Abarth configurator ?

If you can get down to the Flagship store in Central London (behind Selfridges), they have a configurator on the wall in the Abarth section with a built in printer. It was quite a laugh but the ink cartridge had run out when we were there and the unit tends to revert to the mother tongue! However, it didn't stop us from signing the dotted line.
Definitely a help.
