No your vehicle couldn´t be cloned by giving the first 7 of 17 digits.

In any case the complete VIN number is visible to everyone as it it located on the bottom left hand corner of the windscreen anyway..
So a potential crook will note that and the Reg number, then "ring" another vehicle with your details

Nice one webcode, I reckon it would be a great help, as I've previously posted .. We are not mind readers, esp where its a long running model like the Espace, Clio or Laguna ... the more info the better ...

also like the idea of putting it in the profile

Gets my vote.

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
