89 and they messed up an accident report. I'm pretty sure the accident reported on the X5 happened on my father's 325xi.

Screw the score, it gave me the last 11 years history on my beloved Bronzitbeige e30 vert! I even was able to look up the plate # using the vin as well. . .it only has about 40k more miles on it since I sold it 11 years ago, and it's still in Chicago. . man I'd love to get a hold of the current owner!

Thanks OP, very cool find.

Worked with 3/4 VINs for me. Not very accurate at all, all the vehicles I put in have had damage claims and they all came back clean.

Nice find, though!

glad you guys were able to use it!

I realize autocheck and carfax aren't the best things to base buying a car off of, but its neat to know some info about your car that you wouldnt know otherwise.

e46 got a 93. Highlander got an 87. Both came up clean. The BMW has had a quarter panel replaced, but clearly wasn't reported to insurance as carfax and autocheck don't show it. Highlander is in fact 100% clean and original.
