Would be a helpful change that when you do a refined search for a vehicle that you could also narrow your search field down within the makes. Eg im looking at utes at the moment but wanna look at only Ford, Toyota and Holden but currently have to select them separately or sift through heaps of Mitsubishi and Great Wall etc that I’m not interested in. Cheers

Enjoy using the site because it’s not completely changing every five minutes.

You need to Improve your search engine though. For example. I live in the Wairarapa and want to search for an item in the lower north island I.e. Wellington, Palmerston North and Wairarapa. I Can’t though I have to do them all separately.

Also if I could download my watch list into excel it would be great. This would make it much easier to manage them, group them and determine what is best for me.

That’s all.

Great, but...

Great App, I use it mostly on my iPad at home, iPhone on the go. I’ve just started using Afterpay as an option for buyers, but if I edit or relish an item on my iPad or iPhone, it removes the Afterpay option and I can’t reselect it as a payment option, I then need to open my browser and re-edit the listing and reselect Afterpay as an option. Annoying AF!
