All functions working well. Have a big SEO trouble. All virtuemart pages from this filter have tag link rel="canonical". Other pages, generated from joomla menu or virtuemart category module is noncanonical. It can reduce the traffic.

this module do not change any links on the page and not makes modification in the HTML output,
AND the search bots not use this module (because cannot), so they not see these pages

so I see no any SEO trouble, related to this module

perfect module works fine thanks to the developer, would have been nice if the end user selects the category and it auto filters instead of clicking filter button

Easy to install.
Fully reported category structure.
Worked as it says

It's not perfect, needs polishing, but the developer seems to be doing this with his updates.

Nearest other commercial plugin is priced at a hefty 60Euros although is further developed.

Overall a good plugin and at the price we can't complain!

Suggestions for future
- Set a level to which the menu is already collapsed e.g 3 boxes (allows for a 1-2-3 steps look)
- Allow a title for each level e.g Step 1 - Model and allow customization of box text
- BIG thing - integrate search results with joomla/virtuemart native SEF Urls OR allow an option that outputs a "No index" meta tag to results page so as not to flood google with dynamic Urls

I think one or two of these are being addressed, but after these, this could be perfect!
