Hello and welcome to the forums!! If you could please provide us with what your car is (year, engine, trans etc) this would really help us out in helping you Remember that most of the users on this site live in the USA so using the British way of saying your plate number will mean diddly to them, when you tell the year of your car use the manufactured date and not the first registered date
