JQuery Remove() With Select options - not removing fully

Hi All,

I am using the JQuery.remove() to remove option elements from a html SELECT list as per the following code...

WHat I am finding is that even though I have removed certain list items, when you click on  the remaining items, it's value appears to be the value of a removed item if that make sense??... try clicking on the item Porsche and you will see the alert() is Audi.

http://jsfiddle.net/rit01/9cWAS/ 

Can anyone suggest a fix for this?

Many thanks,

Rit

HTML
<select multiple="multiple" id="cars">
    <option value="volvo" title="01/05/2011">Volvo</option>
    <option value="saab" title="01/15/2011">Saab</option>
  <option value="opel" title="04/06/2011">Opel</option>
  <option value="audi" title="05/04/2011">Audi</option>
    <option value="audi" title="01/04/2011">Porsche</option>
</select>

Open in new window


JS
function refineList(fromDateArg, toDateArg) {

    $("#cars > option").each(function() {

        optionDate = $.datepicker.formatDate("mm/dd/yy", new Date(this.title));
        fromDate = $.datepicker.formatDate("mm/dd/yyyy", fromDateArg);
        toDate = $.datepicker.formatDate("mm/dd/yyyy", toDateArg);

        if (!(optionDate >= fromDate && optionDate <= toDate)) {
            $(this).remove();
        }
    });
}

refineList(new Date("01/01/2011"), new Date("03/31/2011"));

$("#cars > option").click(function(){
    alert($(this).val());
});
