I see that you can search based on a part number but not a description. Can that functionality be added?

Thanks Loren!

Well, I could add that but sometimes the descriptions are pretty bad -- i.e. "screw" (only word used to describe the part) - 3,740 instances, or "adhesive" - 1,870 instances, etc. etc.

Let me see how hard it would be to do - then perhaps we can try it and see if it is useful at all.

ah....totally understand. I didn't think of that. I know in some of the search engine for forum software you can look for more than 1 word buy using sometihng like:

Search: +adhesive +brake +pad

...to find brake pad adhesive

Maybe that is a functionality possible here? Sorry, Loren, I am just bored right now and trying to find ways to make things easier. You can reach through the computer if you like and give me a good smack across the forehead :)

:lol: The problem is the "official" price list I get is the same one dealers get - so what I said above is -- "ADHESIVE" is the only word in the description for 1,870 parts. If the description was "carpet adhesive" that would make life easy. No such luck - this is how Porsche delivers the price list to their dealers :rolleyes:

Still I'll take a look at what we can do - as some parts actually do have useful descriptions.

Ok, the new option to search by description has been added.

Please give it a try and let me know of any technical problems (remember I can't fix the words Porsche uses to describe parts).
