The data can be split or concatenated to suit your needs, for example if you sell vehicle car mats you would group by only 4 fields, but an engine tuning company would need to specify all 9. How you choose to use them is up to the requirements of your business but we are here with 12x6 support to help you out. Each vehicle is coded to our unique UVID driven by industry standard codes such as ABI, MVRIS, GLASSID and others. You will then be able to call our API directly using the UVID for parts, tyres etc in the same way and with the same return that VRM lookup does.

Drop down data is updated monthly and is on a subscription basis of £99.00+vat per month with a minimum subscription period of 6 months.
