I tried to build a white quad with the green & white stitching, and received the "generated a conflict" message. Does La Maria Conte have a problem with this choice, or is it programmers like lockem? Or only available at the dealer level?
It didn't show the possibility of white panels in the interior, which I have seen in pics (and red) .

Was hoping the Stelvio Quad would be there, as I do think the Lusso leather and wood interiors should be available in the SUV, even if it is fast.

So now I know for a fact that my cost will be $3550 below MSRP if I ever end up taking delivery of my 18 QV....

I like the more realistic pictures. The colors are more accurate I think.
I have to think they could have made this available sooner. I think the hold-back was more than just certification.

Hmmm, I don't see anything like that for my Sport Ti Q4.

OTOH, they no longer require the NAV on the Sport Ti Q4. I wonder if it is too late to remove it from my order?

OTOHOH, here are the details for the non-NAV system:
"The 8.8-Inch AM / FM / HD Radio with Bluetooth® with Navigation is equipped with steering wheel controls, and a central rotary knob. System features bluetooth phone activation, AM/FM HD Radio, efficient drive mode screens and a media interface."

No mention of Carplay or Auto :frown2:

"No mention of Carplay or Auto "----I noticed this too.. will be interesting to see if it actually has it . perhaps hardware is in, but the certification and activation will come later

To get the changes to take, you have to click the narrow red box at the bottom of the popout box "accept changes." I didnt' notice the console cover and I ordered Ice too. The new scene is nice. Brakes and tires look way better. It's feels closer up too.

Hey, maybe the new console lid caused a delay as well? That would be "body vendor - additional equipment." ;) I like it either way. I'm glad I have time to think about it. Ice may be just great.

configurator shows new possibility-- Lusso, with performance package gets paddle shifters, and active suspension and the crema non sport seats interior--- this is the combo I wanted all along and it wasn't available in 17. Now I am a bit dissapointed because I have Quad on order but this combination is what I wanted, and not sure what to do LOL. I should have waited.

I noticed that a car cover is not an option under 'exterior' like it was before. That said...mine was order with one and I paid for one....but still haven't received it 5+ weeks after taking delivery.

The difference I noticed for the black/ice interior is the 18 has a white armrest, whereas my 17 has black center armrest (better for hiding dirt/grime etc.

Interestingly, the NAV system description now includes the handwriting recognition that some users were wondering about under a separate thread.
"Additionally the system features a 3D (1200 x 480 pixel) Navigation with available handwriting recognition and split screen capabilities"

I never thought of a car's display in terms of pixels. Now that I see it here, I'm surprised it's only about half the 1,040,000 pixels of my camera's much smaller LCD display. I suppose it looks OK considering.

Viewing distance is a factor.
Camera LCDs and smartphone screens are viewed at a much closer distance in comparison to a car's display.
Although in this day and age there is really no reason why a manufacturer should not use the highest resolution screens.

Makes sense. I suppose a car's display is more like a laptop's.

I'll have to pay attention to the difference in viewing distance. Camera ~ 1 foot and car about 3 feet?

Of course digital specifications don't apply when I'm using my camera's optical viewfinder.
