There is a thread on MLOC about this, as the author of the newly - appeared register asked for information on that site.

I mentioned that it had already been done here on exiges and raised my concerns over data security.

Whether the viewable register shows only part of the VIN is, to my mind, irrelevant if the whole thing is stored somewhere along with location and all other car details.

Paranoid I may be (!) but I consider the idea both pointless and a massive risk. The only logical register holder should be the Lotus factory and then only for specific purposes like safety and in any future vehicle identity dispute.

I’ve just recalled the original posts started by Paul Myhill. A search will reveal it. Maybe Andy B could resurrect it. I found it fascinating.

Thanks, Andy. Interesting to go back through that. The first page is very informative for anyone new to exiges.com.
Unless anyone objects, do you think that should be a pinned topic as I believe they are called?

As above, I'm not happy with this so will not be passing on details of my car. Reasons are:

1) Security of the database itself
2) Personal data storage/use
3) Vehicle identity theft/cloning
4) Potential confusion of multiple databases if trying to confirm provenance

There have already been questions about 'is it a real Exige or a rebodied Elise?', eg. https://www.exiges.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=21133

In that case I understand the chassis number confirmed it wasn't, but imagine this latest unofficial database gets hacked/stolen, giving access to a full VIN and other specifics and your car gets cloned.

How, then, do you confirm yours is the real Exige? Apparently the same colour, same VIN, same spec, same history, etc. One database says yours is real, one database says it's not...can of worms well and truly open.

The information being requested on MLOC is as below:

VIN or at least 4 last digits: S C C G A 1 1 1 _ _ H _ 8 _ _ _ _
Model-year (digit number 10 in the VIN):
First registration date:
Original colour:
Actual engine (Rover / Honda / Audi / ...):
Drive (RHD / RHD converted to LHD / LHD / LHD converted to RHD):
Factory fitted options (sport seats + harnesses / audio / alarm):
Country where the car was sold new:

Yes, maybe, on reflection, it is not such a good idea, although I found it fascinating while Paul M was assembling it with Graham.
I would quite understand if this idea was abandoned, although the initial information about numbers built etc could be retained.
