A Disappointing Site and Painful URL

by

It’s almost as if Audi doesn’t care if people come to their website to build a desired car.

This is the URL that comes up when building a $120,000 S8:
http://ak4-fr.audi.de/controller.do?next=&page=&slot-value=s8&slot-explicit=&slot=carline&kind=&v_r=&v_z=&v_d=&v_x=1&v_cb=&v_mod_sort=&v_serie=&v_basics_images=&v_basics_details=&v_extras=&v_extras_images=&v_extras_details=&v_accessories=&v_accessories_images=&v_accessories_details=&v_allitems=&v_tech=&v_rate=&v_show_rate_toogle=&v_show_finance_link=&v_show_extras=&v_show_mandatory=&v_show_advice=&v_show_accessories=&v_open_extras=&v_compare_filter=&mandant=ak4_us_en&filter-value=&filter-name=&reset-filter=&transfer_q=&command=&last_on_page=&v_ay=0&v_carstoreupdate=

How am I supposed to send this to my friend?  And what’s up with the huge gray empty chasm in the middle of the screen that leaves us wondering if it’s time for a restart? 

BMW USA has the best ‘build your own’ of any car website.  Most Canadian equivalent websites are shamefully compromising.
