Yes, you inset the numbers after the vin

 

It's a long time ago since I wrote the script & the info was provided by sheffieldcortinacentre, he might be able to help better than me.

Hi Mark, "medium compression " ?. I know there is low compression and HC, but ,Medium does not sound good :unsure: probably is medium anyway with 100k on it :lol:

 

Form is with my legal team at the moment :afro:

If you right click on the vin code screen, select view source you'll see all the info of the codes available.

Great thanks Neil :thumbup: my codes are not there but i can now work out the rest of it.

 

 

Mark,i wonder if the car was "NB medium compression" because it was built with automatic transmission.

Ooh, I didn't know they encoded the compression as well as the engine size.
