    Does anyone know of a website that gives you the chassis number from the VRM pleeease? Or even one with a subscription fee?

    Franey ,

    In the acual URL in the bar at the top of the page , change the REGNO , to the number you want to lookup.

    I made the same mistake of trying to change the REGNO on the actual page itself :eek:

    It will work.

    LOL ...

    I mailed them to see why it had gone .... not to let them know that we were spanking it for all we are worth ... :rolleyes:

    Their reply was :-

    Hello,

    Unfortunately because people were using our site to retrieve information about the vehicles, rather than find the part they require; we have had to stop the system, as we have had to pay for every search made.

    Regards

    Maxine

    You lot had killed it before i even asked ..... ;)

    lol oh well it was useful while it lasted.

    Any idea where they obtain the data from?
    Im sure some garages have access to stuff like this where they can put in the reg number and pull all the details, anyone know or use a system at work?
