Anyone tried it yet? Its fookin crap if you ask me!!

Dunno why they have changed it, stupid idea. They have tried to go all fancy and modern (and I hate this term but almost like they are trying to go "Web 2.0"), but imho, simplicity is the better option in these types of applications.

thumbsdown

I think it seems to take longer then it used to do, to do the same things. Like there is a delay when it now "searches" for models of cars whereas it used to load them list instantly. You also have to now click the change option before you can change the vehicle manufacturer whereas you just used to re-select from the list.

Its all well and good the specific model search, which could be handy, but only if people listed their cars correctly - 90% of ads on there dont even list the trim, never mind list it and the rest of its specs correctly lol.

Now when one does a search without logging in, it sets the distance to National instead of 40 miles, which is pathetic. And when you change your search options, it actively updates to tell you how many cars its found, but you have to click show to list the cars, whats the feckin point in that!!

already its piss arsin about, cant handle chaging the distance atm, obviously busy but never had problems like this on the old search facility.

All ya get atm when ya change the search distance is "finding available cars".

Absolute wank!

Why if its still BETA, is already in production and replaced the stable version? Fookin muppets couldnt organise a piss up in a brewery, obviously their IT team doesnt understand what BETA fookin mean the Grrrs!

They probably sorted the issue out tbh as I tried an hour before ye, but its just fookin shit.

I filled in their feedback questionaire, and explained to them they shouldnt be using BETA as a production application, gave them a link to an explanation of software lifecycles by Wikipedia and then suggested they go back to the old search method until they can sort the new out.

Cheeky but it pissing me off this new one, its sheer crap!!
