    I'm looking for a website that gives detailed specification of used cars. I'm sure I have found it before. Say for example you wanted to know what the standard spec of a 2000 BMW 318 was. Can't remember anything about the site, but I 'm pretty sure you could search by car then model and its age and it would list the standard spec for that model.

    Any help appreciated.

    Thanks
    Greg

    edit: I have found one site http://www.ukcar.com/ but that wants to charge you for any information and I'm sure the one I found before was free.

    I've found Parkers to be quite good in the past

    Thanks Darren. Sorry for being a dunce but I can't find where it gives specs on used cars on the site, I can find the free valuations.

    Cheers

    I think, but may be wrong, that whatcar has reviews and specs available.

    i find parkers to be the best too.

    to find specs go to the reviews tab at the top, and find the review for the car you are looking for. The specs will be on about page 6 or 7 of the review.

    Hope this helps
