Build Your Own on bmwusa.com - I'm not having any luck

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I was attempting to configure a build and end up with the MSRP with all desired options. No such luck. I go to BMWUSA.com and there is no way I can get the damn thing to start the process.

What am I doing wrong? Have they (BMW) blocked me so I have to physically show up at a dealership to get prices and, in the process, go though a waterboarding routine aimed at making me buy on the spot?

I'm feeling a bit stupid....

That's weird. I can get to the build your own area, enter the model, etc. and it does nothing whatsoever....just sits there and stares at me...no options to do anything but "reset" and try again which, of course, leads me nowhere at all.

Thanks for trying to help Bear - appreciated!

That thing is notoriously fickle. Maybe try in a different browser.

Try different browsers and make sure they're up to date on your computer. Otherwise, the site seems fine as far as today is concerned. Built a Tanzanite blue M4

Definitely try a different browser and check if you have cookies disabled or any pop-up or ad blockers. For me, the site always works on Chrome 64-bit (Default Browser) on Windows 10 Pro. Though, the car images on the first two screens (exterior / interior) can be finicky, especially when switching between views.
