Automobile Make and Model search for car parts?


Recommended Posts

Has anyone come with an automobile make and model search that customers can use when trying to find parts for their car? I would like my customers to be able to select their year, make, model, and maybe engine size. Any help is greatly appreciated!!!!!

Maybe I have the same problem - parts for bikes. And I do not have yet a solution, but I continuesearching.


I think any kind of "attributes" are not a good solution for my problem. One should have a second order of categories / hierarchies.


I think it?s a problem of top-down and buttom-up hierarchies. For parts we have a hierarchical order:

Top-hierarchy: MODEL (contains Parts available for ALLl bikes of this model excluding sub-categories), par example model "Softail"



=>TYPES (Parts available for all bikes of this type excluding parts in "MODEL" not specific for any year of bulding), par example "Softail Standard"



==> YEAR, par example (Parts only specific for Softail Standard 1990


If you select "Softail Standard 1990" you should see all the specific parts from this year of bulding + all the specific parts of this model-type + all parts which are not specific.
