Just been down the rabbit hole and read a few threads from that link. Some very interesting stuff and definitely a useful tool.

I've used that site a few times over the last few months, it's pretty good!

Just run the full £9 check on mine. No hidden surprises but a lot of very useful and potentially value enhancing former keeper/mileage/numberplate change details.

Recommend this highly.

Hello,

Sorry to come here uninvited but I wanted to give a warning to a potential car which can be purchased by members here:

https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified ... 6078777780

The seller claims HPi Clear and this is correct as per official database.

Image

Our report is clear, with the exception of salvage records :thumbsdown:

https://www.vcheck.uk/report/GF65LRL-9NS4FP7/

Not the biggest damage but when buying a premium car I would like to know it was sold in January at salvage, labeled as category S, most likely due to suspension damage.

P.S Please don't ban me for advertising, I am trying to help but I promise I will sort out my forum Sponsor account this week. I had few Audis in the past and if monies ever allow, I will be searching for a family-friendly RS :kissmyrings:

Would you know why it would be a Cat S on the auction but not coming up on HPI?

I would be pretty annoyed if I bought a car and then saw photos of it as a salvage car! I'll be using your service again on my next purchase for sure.

Yes, it was explained in below article by AutoExpress:
https://www.autoexpress.co.uk/car-news/ ... echoes-our

Long story short 1 in 9 writeoffs is missing from HPI.

MIAFTR, the dabatasw used to record them, is voluntary and there is no law in place regarding it.

3% insurance companies dont supply data there at all. And those who do have no penalties for late submissions or no submissions at all. Official salvage code says MIAFTR should be updated in reasonable time, it can be week after car is written off, month, year... or never;)

There is 90k cars missing from last year alone. Obviously not all go via salvage so we can’t pinpoint each not updated on HPI but we see plenty of them.

A recent example from our FB page. "HPI Clear" at its full glory!

If you look at our previous posts you will get the idea what the problem is ;)

Do you ever wonder what happens with ex-Police cars? This example came back to use as a personal car, sold as Category C write-off and clocked "only" 150k before first MOT. It looks current owner has no idea of its past, as it was done before him. The car received a new interior, which is common with ex-Police cars, as they come with basic spec.
