You can usually get quite a quick response from type.approval@vwg.co.uk on the build date, type and country shipped to if you email them with the vin number.

If it is in the UK you need to know if it is on NOVA and what paperwork comes with it, registration in the UK is fairly simple process, although involves having all the right paperwork in place, without it you could be in trouble.

There are plenty of threads on here about registration, the search facility is quite good.

As to other history it'll depend on where it came from and how active a scene there is.

Post any more questions you have and good luck in landing this one.
