I see. So it looks like there is 1 car more optioned than mine (only because it has individual paint it looks like) out of 37 cars being compared to mine. Not too bad. I'm going to subscribe to this thread and follow it.

Keep up the good work!

EDIT: So for Bowers & Wilkins Stereo option and Electronic Damper Control option, it says 1/37 so does that mean I'm the only one out of 37 other cars with those options or does it mean there is 1 other car like yours out of 37 with that option?

It means you are the only one!

Maybe you could get the list of options from a more reliable source?
I did check the case you mentioned, and actually, both cases seem to be valid. BMW uses the same code for different features in different regions, it seems. I think the only reliable way is to show both under this option, don't you agree? Maybe it is both of the options, or can you get only one of them without getting another?

I'm gladly letting you know this feature is now live. You can see a list of all options found at the very bottom of the report.

I have just updated the tool.

Three main goals of this update were to:

- Improve page load time
I've managed to almost double the report generation pace, which should help retain the users.

- Make design clear and mobile friendly
Previously, tables were not visible in the mobile. This is now fixed. Instead of showing long percentage bars, I'm now just showing a simple badge with color and percentage. On top of that, you can now click on each option and see detailed stats.

- Add a few features.
I have added the full options list at the very bottom of the report. It will now show all options found to vehicles like yours and mark them either red or green depending on if your car has it or not.

What's next?

I will add a quick check which will show if your vehicle was ever put on the auction, and if it was, It will have the pictures, prices and other details as well. I know this might not be the best feature for most of you since you're probably riding new vehicles, but here in Europe it's actually going to be a useful feature.

Awesome, great job!

I'm curious about one thing - let's say I'm checking a car with 56/60 options (P030169), and yet at the bottom I see more red than green (let's say a 100 options missing). Of course that's alright, you can't have them all, some are mutually exclusive, but - how do you calculate this 56/60 then? Is 60 simply taken from a car with the most options (by number) that was ever checked by you?

Also, the title of the section says: "All options found in vehicles like yours" - without "built in EUR" like in main comparison, and it seems that's correct (I see "BMW US Radio" missing on my EUR car). I would say it would be more appropriate to display missing options also in regards only to build region of the car - less clutter

Yep. 60 in your case is max options found in a single vehicle. And for the region specific options - I can add a third colour in that list, which would be grey, and it would mean, that option is not for your region. What do you think?
