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

Updated 1st post with a couple of alternative VIN decoders as mdecoder is apparently a bit flaky at the moment.

Both tested working at 08/08/2020

https://www.checkmyreg.com no longer works.

Requires 'Developer plan' - i.e payment to get VIN number.

https://mdecoder.com
only seems to work if you have already sucessfully used it (from a while ago)
It doesn't work for new punters
