    nah mate,

    it means its categorised, i.e: A,b,c,d etc....basically, be careful. make sure you know exactly wat had happened to it. if just stolen recorvered...had locks damaged etc, maybe its worth it.....but there could be much more damage, u are unaware of and will make it hard 4 u 2 sell it after!!!

    like i say though...if its definitly not had much damage, it may be a bargain!

    It probably means its on the V-Car register (V car registered) not on a "V Plate"

    V plate cars are legit cars between T and W registered - theres an unmarked Police Rover in Northants with the reg starting V911 Theres also a couple of V reg cars down the street.

    Recorded on VCAR indicates the vehicle is on the vehicle condition alert register (VCAR ) I.e. its probably been written off in the past and has been recorded to make people aware of this if they are thinking of buying it in the future.

    Hope this helps mate
