Why is it Autodata the so called biggest supplier of technical info still cant match all registrations on their vrm lookup or give you the exact engine code for so many vehicles. |
Other tech info databases can do this and cost so much less but they cant and you pay a fortune for access to their service !!
I find this so bloody annoying so often especially when i want the engine code !!
I cant be the only one who has this issue and i emailed them and all i got back was 'its down to the 3rd party supplier we use for the info' well i say spend some of that millions we pay you and sort it out !!!! Rant over

Hi Andrew |
There is one company in the UK that supplies VRM lookup data to all companies that require a VRM lookup system, they even clean up and amend data for DVLA
All the vehicle data is available, it's just how many sections of it that a company requires or wants to pay for, the more vehicle data the higher the cost
I have had this a few times on our own garage invoicing system where it does not give me an engine code to be able to pinpoint a correct filter etc, but our own Workshop Data does
It may be that the extra bit of engine code data is missing from the Autodata database list (same as my garage system). It's nothing to do with the 3rd party vehicle data supplier, it's an Autodata issue despite what they fob you off with
