help...

Hi I have just checked a cars history out on Autocheck.co.uk

and although the car had no outstanding finance, or insurance claims etc...

One thing striked me as odd...the engine number came back as unknown...
all the previous checks I have made on other cars all gave me the engine number.
Is there something wrong? ie. could the car be an import...
its a bugeye wrx btw

Hi Ben

Do a search for engine codes on here, That may give you some info. It may be something like O (letter) instead of a 0 (number) or something simple like that. Even if an import, as long as it is registered with the DVLA then it should come back OK.

oK I've doen the search but cant seem to find anything for a 2001 wrx.

Im not bothered whether its an import or not, but its just the dealer said its a UK car.

Is there a way of finding out for sure?

Don't think your find out with the engine number.

The UK Impreza had a Sigma category 1 alarm system fitted as standard, look for the (Keypad) located on the driver side just under the headlight beam lever switch, foglight switch & the rear fog light switch.
