Just got the msg. dude, I see you got sorted. If its on uk plates it might be worth sticking up in the uk regional forums?

ah your grand, it was some tech glitch that affected a lot of people on here. Luckily Vincent gave me a hand.
I thought it already would be better here seeing as the majority of the users are from the UK. Its a pity really as its going for a fantastic price even with VRT included and its the 02 model so FL interior and the 150 engine, lovely pair of wheels on here but a bit bubbly (not too bad though) and a nice colour imo. Only thing i dont like is that its a SW, im used to the saloon and i would like to have another one but i would be crazy not to take this one and its basically the same boot so not much of a difference tbh

where did you get that info from? i typed the number plate into Google and got a load of rubbish back.
So basically the car is a 2002 but was registered in 2003?

Vehicle Identity Check


The Vehicle Identity Check (VIC) is a scheme to help stop stolen cars being passed off as repaired accident damaged cars. This is also known as ‘ringing’. You can check if a vehicle needs a VIC and submit your application online.
How a VIC marker is set
Insurers should notify the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) of all cars ‘written off’ within salvage categories A, B or C. This notification will set a ‘VIC marker’ against the DVLA vehicle record. While a VIC marker remains set, DVLA won’t issue a registration certificate V5C, or vehicle licence reminder V11.
The VIC marker will only be removed when the car passes a VIC.
Checking a vehicle’s identity
The Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) carries out the VIC. It’s designed to confirm the car’s identity and help ensure that the genuine car is returned to the road.
The VIC takes around 20 minutes to complete and involves comparing the details on the DVLA vehicle record against the car presented. The VIC is a check of identity, it doesn’t look at the quality of the repair or confirm roadworthiness. If you have any concerns regarding these aspects, you should seek the opinion of an independent expert.
Once a car has passed a VIC, the V5C issued will be annotated to show ‘substantially repaired and/or accident damaged; identity checked on dd/mm/ccyy’.
Confirming if a VIC marker is set
You can check if a VIC marker is set, by making a vehicle enquiry through the Vehicle Enquiry section of DVLA's vehicle online services. To make your enquiry you’ll need to know the vehicle registration mark and vehicle make.
Once you make an enquiry the VIC marker will only show if it’s been set against the vehicle record by DVLA.

he has the v5, the car has damage at the rear, so maybe the insurers declared it a write off and he bought it back?

ah gotcha now... only thing that worries me is the VIC mark. Would this make it difficult to register in Ireland??
