Anyone else noticed that the Russian website that translates VIN numbers into factory build sheets has gone down?

I haven't been able to get into it for 3 days now - anyone else able to access it?

Hi Chaps
I guess you are happy with this site?
Is it possible that your VIN numbers could be used for anything dodgy ie cloning and alike??

If the site has all of the info,,and it has,, it would not need to pick on your VIN,,thats the way that I see it

I would have thought the VIN on its own is useless for car cloning without the matching registration number?

Anyway I think the site is trust worthy, although its a little outdated now.

Leave the car in a car park and a cloning thief can walk past, read the registration, read the vin No through the windscreen (little window passenger side at the bottom), follow you home to get your address. He now has all the info needed to order a new key. Genuine registration doc. blank forms which should have been destroyed but were not are available on black market. Bingo your car is off to Baghdad.
I hide the vin No by sliding a bit of black card into the gap between the screen and dash top to cover it.
