A quick way to find VIN from registration no.

Post by Major_Sarcasm »

Handy resource to find the VIN of a vehicle from the registration mark. A few of these sites are about but often disappear or remove this functionality. Useful for looking up the build sheet of a prospective purchase in conjunction with online VIN decoders.

http://www.enginecentre.com <-- pop the registration in there and search. Hey presto, engine size, bhp and the all-important (complete) VIN.

This no longer works nor does the blueprint live site.

Has anyone got any alternatives ?

I can do reverse VIN lookups, i.e. if you want the reg plate from the VIN or vice versa. Are you still looking?
