I did want to order, but it won't go past the enter billing/shipping information page. And because the site is just a text site with pictures, so it's very hard to use.

Aren't all websites text sites with pictures :) Not sure why it's not working for you, but there's been plenty of orders today, and the synthetic orders are processing, so perhaps it was just a temporary issue.

I thought that too, but it's been going on for a few days and I've done an O/S upgrade during that time.

I don't doubt it, but something's not right. I run monitoring from various global locations to keep an eye on things, and right now I'm connected via UK VPN, and there's no issues, so something seems to be preventing the page from loading correctly for you, I'm not sure what it could be though...maybe a FIOS thing? Not sure. The site itself is mostly served out of Austin with a CDN for non-US locations. Nothing structurally has changed on the site for ages, just content stuff.

I'm not really sure either. I don't see any log problems, and other sites load fine. My guess is that there is an asynchronous route somewhere.

But notice the loop:

11 po2.fcr01.sr01.dal05.networklayer.com (173.192.118.133) 9.860 ms
po1.fcr01.sr01.dal05.networklayer.com (173.192.118.131) 9.843 ms
po2.fcr01.sr01.dal05.networklayer.com (173.192.118.133) 77.111 ms <---- This isn't looking good

133 to 131 back to 133. I suspect that's the problem.
 
I'm a bit gun shy to do the install but hope that I get up the nerve during the week! Are people cutting out the carpet on the side to install the side lights in the trunk or using velcro?

There's a lot more discussion about this on the main thread here. The summary is that there's already cut-outs (or punch outs) in the trunk carpet, so a little encouragement with a craft knife is all that's needed. The larger challenge is finding the wires, they're there, and normally near the punch-outs, but they are sometimes taped up, so you'll need to pull the carpet away to get to them. This seems especially true for the charger side of the car.
