That's so much better now. I've always wanted to see the garage names, rather than just the testing station number.

I love all stuff like this. Cazana is my favourite reg checker, as it shows all the private plates cars have had on. Very addictive.....

yes, Cazana is quite good for that, it also puts a valuation on the car which isn't very accurate at all, I don't think it looks at things like Cat registered cars and adjust the price

I think it just looks at mileage & owners and must trend sales prices for an approx figure

It does sometimes show you recent ad's for the car you're checking as well :yep:

'http://www.checkthecar.com/ is another site, I like the mileage totals it gives, especially when a cars been clocked :rofl:

It something to be very aware of when you get your MOT done, check the mileage is correct, I'm sure it's difficult if not impossible to get it corrected at a later date :blink:

With a car like the Rs or any performance car trying to tell someone........ Oh it was a typo the guy put 45350 instead of 35450, especially when the next years MOT mileage is 38000, you automatically think this cars been clocked :blush:
