I built a private car sales search engine (so could snag the perfect M3)

Hi all, so I wanted to share: https://hiddenrides.com/.

This is a project/hobby for me - mainly because I enjoy browsing various car forums to see what cars I can afford at any given time.

Shared this on a few other forums and got positive feedback so thought i should spread the love.

The inspiration for this project was a clean green/caramel e46 6spd i missed out on years ago - but hopefully this can help out the fellow BMW enthusiasts as well.

Any thoughts/feedback would be appreciated!

Dude...............

Terrible idea. I mean come on.

You're going to get me in so much trouble with the wife!

This is a great idea. I have bookmarked it and will probably look through it wayyyyyy too often.

Excellent work. It worked well for me. I'll let you know if I think of anything as I use it.

I came across your site a few weeks ago I think it was. Book marked it already - a shame you had to let the secret out...

Are you looking in Prescott? Because there ain't nothing E30 related there most of the time.

Actually there's a r3v member out here I've talked too, he's building a pretty nice M60 swap from what I can tell.

They pop up on Clist every so often, but I haven't stumbled across any that are enthusiast built.

damn this is amazing..

Is there a plan to include Craigslist cars as well, and possibly toggle it on/off in the search results?

I know there's crawlers for eBay and Craigslist already, but it would be really cool to have it all bundled into one program.
