I started BmwConfig in 2011 while I was shopping for my 3rd BMW. Finding the perfect BMW has always been time consuming and I felt it shouldn't be so hard.
Now in 2013, I have not been able to bring BmwConfig to the state I originally envisioned. therefore, I need help so things keep moving forward.
- Do you have software development skills, either front-end and back-end expertise? BmwConfig needs to migrate off the Silverlight plugin, and bring a few other useful tools to life
- Are you extremely familiar with equipment and lineup? The data need to be double and triple checked
- Do you want to write news?
In a nutshell, if you have some free time, a passion for BMWs, and have found BmwConfig useful and want to make it better, please contact me!

When BmwConfig was initially developed, the Silverlight plug-in (At the time in its version 4.0) was supported both on Mac and PC, on every major browser. However with the introduction of Silverlight 5.0, Microsoft stopped supporting Chrome on Mac OS, as the compatibility table found on this page shows:
Since Microsoft has announced the retirement of Silverlight, this will probably never get fixed.
Unfortunately for the Mac users, the only viable alternative is to use one of the 2 supported browsers such as FireFox or Safari.
Indeed it will take some time for BmwConfig to migrate off the Silverlight platform.
