Second hand engine check?

Recommended Posts

So I've put a second hand engine in my 2008 535d but the place I bought it from won't give me the reg it came from just that it's a 2009 with 100k on it, he said breakers are not aloud to give the reg out by law but I said I can look at any car on my street and do a mot check to check the millage on direct gov but still won't.

 

So is there any way I can get the reg from the engine number?

He won't give me any details but he sent a video of the car running from engine bay to him revving it in the cab and the vin is on the strut just blurry so trying to find some 1 who can enhance the video 

I'm not disputing that he won't give it to you but I've never come across this.

It sounds like b.s to me, the only reason I can think of is he's trying to hide the car's true history.

Which is why I suggested to ask trading standards if you can ask the seller for the car's registration details.

Well they've admitted to it making out they gave me wrong engine but don't have any more in, ye right, and it has low oil pressure that's why I started to check it out.
