Perhaps it's a case of the BIS has more things to go wrong, rather than more faulty in general. Although that pretty much means the same thing really.

It doesn't help that the BIS is rarer; it had a run of 5 years in a single type of car, whereas the aircooled had 27 years and was used in the 500 too.

Is it just me or did the buyers guide go a bit off topic?

Hi, I'm after a bit of advise....

I have rescued AN earlier aircooled UK Fiat 126A - it is in very good condition  and won't want much work to put it back on the road, it is from a deceased estate and unfortunately there is No log book and the registration plates have been removed however The chassis plate is still attached.

it is chassis number 4584252

How do i work out what year it is?

I want to get it back on the road As soon as possible but would need to find out the registration number to apply for a UK logbook

Can the DVLA give the registration number from the chassis number supplied, or am i going to need a bit of help from you guys and obtain a letter stating the year of manufacture and trying to get an age related plate?

Thanks Guys! Any help would be greatly appreciated!
