Hi all,

I'm 'trying' to spec up a new Giulietta with the Alfa Configurator online, but it's doing my head in.

I have got so close - about halfway through choosing options, it puts steel wheels on the car. When I try and add the wheels I want at the end, (18" 5 hole) it adds them to the price, but doesn't show them on the car.

I figure its a bug, but the wheels don't feature on the final spec PDF, which I need to send up to the lease company.

Any guidance would be gratefully received. :)

Hi Alan,

It's the Giulietta 2.0 JTDm-2 170 bhp Veloce TCT

The options are .... well everything - apart from the smoking pack and the electric Lumbar support - which it appears can't be selected together with Electric seats. (also, the Veloce Visibility pack seems to crash the configurator so I couldn't choose that.) When I tick the wheels, it adds the cost to the total, but doesn't list or show them.

If I choose all the options on the Lusso, the wheels are specified in the PDF and on the car graphic.

Everything else is ticked. (Cut and paste from the PDF below)

Hmmm
I think the problem could be the way you may have progressed through the configurator
Some things that you have specced come as standard but you have been charged.
I suggest you start again and work your way from left to right on the various tabs.
I tried your spec and it worked fine.
Have to say your spec takes it above 30k!

Including the wheels? I tried it all sorts of ways ... but I'll give it another go.

PS, if you managed to get the spec from it, can you save it to a PDF and sent it across to me :)

Cheers

PS, it should be £35,770 ... according to the one I did.

Just tried agin from left to right, as soon as you get to Wheels, it puts on the steel ones.

Grrr.

This could be a challenge to set then. If anyone can get it work, as per the above spec but with the 18" 5 holes, can you save it as a PDF for me and attach it.

I think I figured it out.

I can get all the options and wheels I wanted, if I choose Manual, rather than TCT.

Still need to know if it's a bug or just unavailable.

I cant get it to work either.
Sometimes it struggles to get diesel & tct together, but when i do and go to packs, add the vis pack and choose any of the compulsory options the wheels change to turismo steels.
Sorry i can't help.
You may need to check the prices too.
When i configured mine (last Jan) the leather & the bose were both different to what was shown on the price list.
The leather came up cheaper & the bose was more. The paint prices were different too.
I got my dealer to configure it on his pc and there was about £100 difference.
He made changes to match the price but i don't know how a lease company would get on.

Hi,

Thank goodness it's not just me :)

I went to the Dealer nearest me (Reading) today, but it looks like they were shipping out - skips out side etc.

I believe the lease company just passes the order onto the local dealer for checking etc but you're right, introducing a 3rd party is bound to end in tears.

I may nip down to another dealer and get them to spec it up directly.

:)

Hope so - I'm not sure what the lead time is ... but I think the 8c red adds about 2 weeks
Shouldn't make any difference. I was quoted the standard 8-12 weeks. Picked it up 1 day shy of 8 weeks.

re the electric lumbar that is part of the electric seats anyway so you don't have to specify.

.
Hope not, they were bang on when they sorted my car out. Maybe as its shared with the Saab dealer it's them that's shipping out?
