I built a private car sales search engine. m5's included!

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

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

Got a decent amount of interest on other forums so thought id share the love.

Any thoughts/feedback would be appreciated!

I'm genuinely impressed.... (and i'm a web/UX/designer)

Technically very nice indeed. Well done.

Looking forward to when you open it up to international searches. This website will make you rich one day.

Very cool... I've been playing around with it a bunch. Found several "misleads", where the caption and/or the picture was not to the correct advertisement. If you want more info for debugging, let me know.

Thanks for checking it out.

Appreciate the catch. The software is a bit buggy sometimes given the large amount of data it needs to parse through, so unfortunately we get misleads occasionally.

Yes, pls let me know which ones are incorrect - there is also a tool on the bottom right of each listing where you can flag the listing (I’ll see it on the backend and fix accordingly).

thanks - at the moment focused on building out the product versus monitization - could use more features, new cars etc.
