Because you give them your registration and they will be able to tell from that.
In the parts supplying game no one will be 100% right 100% of the time,but you can cut out many of the pit falls by buying via a factor.The factors usually have staff that know about cars and have been there a number of years,Halfords are a little different.
Halfords charts are as accurate as Robin Hood with a blindfold,if you can actually speak to someone who knows about cars then you can cut out a lot of hassle.I'm not a Halfords hater at all,but they are a franchise and you will always find good and bad,with a good independant motor factor they should always go the extra bit to help out as their mortgage depends on it!
I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
