Question Stupid online configurator! Price PDF? Wheel specs?

I'm trying to spec up a Cooper D on that bloody awful configurator. However, it seems it only works on IE6 on a PC. Trying it on Safari (Mac) and Firefox (PC and Mac) it just simply doesn't work. Whoever checked Mini's sites for browser compatibility wants a good slap!

Which brings me to my question... A while back there was a pricelist in PDF (I think) format which had all the accesories and cost etc - that still about anywhere?

Secondly, does anyone know the wheel specs of the R56? I would like to get some aftermarket alloys for my Cooper as I think the BMW ones are always over priced.

Thanks in advance.

PC or mac? What version? I'm running 2.0.0.3 (tried PC and Mac)

Loads up the first bit but only shows the first two options (Mini One and Mini Cooper)

You can check out the wheel specs (if you want sizes, in the accessories bit rather than the configurator). My Mac has a hard time with the configurator too, it's worth checking that you have all the latest java & quicktime updates, as that might be it

Hi Laura,I'll check the wheel specs there, thanks. Got all the latest java and runtime so not sure why its being naughty. Works on the PC with 2.0.0.1 of Firefox (PC) so maybe there is incompatibility in the latest version?

The PDF that I loaded was of the Cooper and Cooper S only, as it was from the launch in November, so wouldn't be a lot of use to you

I'm running Firefox 2.0.0.3 on a PC and the Configurator works fine for me (just tried it to make sure) but if you're only after the options/alloy wheels prices/availability they are exactly the same as for the Cooper petrol, only the price of the basic car is different.

That's nothing to do with which browser you are using, it's a common fault with the Configurator itself not being set up properly to calculate the differences in price that exist when certain options are selected in conjunction with each other.

I'm sure there's something in the small print that says all prices should be confirmed with a dealer.
