New Configurator on UK site

Looks like BMW have updated their configurator to use HTML5 rather than Flash.
Can now use on an iPad! Yippee!


Doesn't work very well though.

It just to work only about 1 in 3 times for me. Often just hung completely before it started and had to kill my browser. If they've improved on that it can only be a good thing.

Next, perhaps they'll sort out the Noddy way the options and the packages combine....

Actually, having just had a 'play' with the configurator on a PC it appears to be coded in JavaScript rather than Flash. Running with Safari on an iPad, it looks very different and partially works, whereas before it didn't work at all. However, this may be down to iOS 4.3 rather than anything BMW has done.
Still a little bit is better than nothing - kind of.
