    Does anyone know what the site is where you type in a car's registration number and it gives you the make, model and year of the car? I used to use it years ago, but have forgotten the site's address completely. I'm sure it's free to use.

    Thanks in advance....

    They've got it on insurance websites, such as www.gocompare.com. But I have no idea how else you can find the cars info without going on insurance websites

    Nice of you to mention it in your post then. Should probably tell your insurer too.

    Don't have access to the V5C atm but it I think it says 3 door.

    The updated versions of the insurance certificate had the door reference removed so it might have been a mistake.

    Put my car in: Car found! NISSAN MICRA EQUATION, 1.0L (998cc), 3 doors, Manual, Petrol, 1998

    Yeah. Not really a problem then.
