    I just loaded it at home last night. It took about a minute to load but I saw the load bar moving and it eventually got there. Could it be your ad-blocker or antivirus software? It is possible that some feature with the configurator code is being blocked by software on your computer because it looks like malware to your system.

    I managed to get it to load with stock IE 11. Took about 20 seconds or so.

    That sounds about right. Since you have Win10 now, did you try it in Edge? It works fine for me.
    Edge is the new Internet Browser that comes with Win10

    I did a little testing.
    If I went to www.eliomotors.com ^and then went to Customize ^ myelio.me then when I clicked on Configurator.
    (The ^ means separate step) each one was done the same way, close anything that was open, open just the browser enter address, then steps above.
    Edge = 35sec
    <Close Edge>
    Chrome = 27sec
    <Close Chrome>
    IE11 = 36sec
    <Close when done>.

    Then step 2 Rather then go through www.eliomotors.com; I went directly to myelio.me
    Opened Edge = 22sec
    <close Edge>
    Open Chrome = 12sec
    <close chrome>
    Open IE11 35
    <Close IE11 and returned>

    So it appears that Chrome will hold the page longer, thus bringing it up faster then the others.
    I would have to say after those tests Chrome is fastest, once it (a page) been opened.
    Edge second; but I know Edge and IE11 have done away with Flash and Java.

    I had not. I don't use IE or Edge, normally. (Except for one coprorate site that doesn't work in Chrome.)

    Turning off both AdBlock and Blur, I can load the configurator in <10 seconds on Chrome (F5 and reload takes about 3 seconds). Edge took about 12 (F5 and reload takes 12 again).

    IMNSHO, the inability of the configurator to work with ad blocking enabled is a major problem.

    I lived in Europe for 9 years and I don't know a single Brit, German, or Italian that only put 3K miles per year on their car. Everyone I knew put many more miles on their vehicles.
