Sales Listings Map

M Coupe Map

This is a feature I have wanted to add for the longest time.  It will be especially cool once we get an M Coupe registry completed, and we know the approximate location of almost all of them :).

The map is filterable by the listing status (for sale, sold, purgatory) as well as the usual filters of colors, price, mileage, etc. Coupes that have been on the market multiple times will be mapped multiple times. Dealerships that have sold multiple coupes, will have all their coupes layered on top of each other which is not ideal, but there’s not much way around it. The most recently listed of their coupes should be the one on top.

As you probably expect, I had to pretty much custom make all of the icons. I did my best to get the color relatively close to the real color, but it was pretty tough. I even have different icons for arctic/titanium silver and boston/oxford green. Each of the icons is also clickable to get some basic information on the coupe. They then also link to the full listing for each coupe.

As most would guess, the vast majority of the coupes have been located on the coasts with tight clusters in California, Florida and the Northeast (and Cincinnati of course). There’s not much action in Montana, Nebraska or the Dakotas.

Because there are so many icons, the map will be fairly slow to load, so I recommend filtering it. I have also defaulted it to only show current listings by default, but you can also have it display all 700 coupe listings like the above map. Have fun.

    Very cool application. I assume you are working on a REAL M Coupe registry? That would be pretty cool. It would be even cooler if you allowed for tracking of “spotted coupes” based on VIN number, etc. (Just an idea). Since we have the VIN number of all domestic M Coupes, you could also work with autocheck to get a current listing of the last activity on each VIN number – it wouldn’t be free, but maybe you could work some sort of cooperative marketing agreement.

    Awesome work!

      Yep, it should be very interesting. I really like the idea of a “spotted” coupes entry form. That would be really cool. We are planning on running AutoChecks on all of them. We’ll probably start with the S54s and work backwards.
