I'm sure we had a thread a wee while ago now about tracing a car through its registration. Pointed to a couple of websites.

Am trying to track what the hire car I have for tomorrow is. It's a Vovlo V70 estate 2.4 - but it could be a 140bhp or 170bhp. Be nice to know which :devil:

Don't think the RAC site will give that level of detail ... not sure of any other sites though.

Insurance company websites may do... on the quotation section.

The Tesco's motor insurance web site will give you this info....the only downside is that you have to fill in a load of spoof info before you get to the bit that will tell you what car you have.

I tired a couple of insurance quotes ;) coz I thought that'd do it - but it doesn't. For this car it only pulls up the range of models :crazy:


But to a degree it's almost academic as I took said car to Newcastle today - now hoping they leave it for me to take to Lytham on Thursday - as it was actually quite nice :eek: Fret not - I'm going to get counselling for my problem :(

I'm still interested in knowing which bhp it was - for trim it was the full SE spec with full leather and elec seats - heated etc etc, a nice spec overall. For me though it's the driving that matters and it was good. Nice n easy and relatively responsive. Not a hire car I've got home grumpy in by any means. :D

I think any FWD car would manage that, just ask the Chav's down the car park!!
