Finding out a cars history

As I'm about to dip my foot into the used car market again, is there anyway of getting details of a cars history from Alfa UK from the reg number/chassis number before parting with my money?

Re: Finding out a cars history

I bought a 147 off Ebay (!) and Alfa UK were very helpful in advising if the car was a UK car (so having the third year warranty). I spoke to Alfa Care or whatever it's called rather than Customer Services. When I was talking to the seller he gave me the name of the dealer and I rang them and they told me they knew the car and it had been serviced by them so the service history stacked up. This was just done off the reg number.

Also remember to do an HPI check. They're only £5 via the RAC website.

Re: Finding out a cars history

I tried to do this a while back at a PUG garage and they refused to give me any details due to privacy laws etc etc.

Load of crock you can get the info from Alfa - or just ask the current owner to request it.

HPI check though to be sure of finance - I almost got caught with that one many moons ago - she wanted the car though so met the guy at the garage and used the cash to pay off the finance.
