How do you become an uploader?

To start to upload to the website you have to register first.

You need to log in by Facebook or Twitter or LinkedIn or Google but if you dont have any of these the easiest way is to go and visit Google Mail registration page and register an email address with Google. Once you have done this you can log-in by your Google account on our website and start to upload to the site.

Please note: You wont be able to see others' entries and pictures until you uploaded few entries (which they have been accepted by the administrators) and exchange your points to membership. Once you collected 100 or 180 points you can go to membership page and pay by your points for the memberships. 

Every one makes us happy who wants to join our developer team and who wants to become an uploader. Great pleasure if someone can upload to our site that datasheets (vehicles) which DOES NOT (!) exist in our database. If you want to become an uploader you just should sign up on our website either by social login or by our subscriptions but before you register definitely read this user guide below because you can find a lots of useful guide to upload. We can't accept wrong or deficient datasheets! If we find your uploading wrong or deficient we must delete it! In such cases where you filled up your datasheet with bad quality photos or lack of essential photos. The reason of this we don't want to show chaos and half empty datasheets on our site.

Essential Photos:

  • 1. Front view of vehicle. A photo where at you can see the vehicle front side and the doors's side. The doors (if it has) must be closed. If you can't understand just take a look at our sample datasheet: Opel - Vauxhall Vivaro 1.9 DTI If you took a picture of one vehicle please remove the license/registration plate from the photo by Windows Paint or other application. You can find it easily on every Windows Operation System.
    This is how "Front view" looks:
  • 2. Position of VIN. A further photo where at everyone can recognize some parts of the vehicle and everyone can notice where is that number's exact place on the vehicle On this picture please mark with white-red arrows by our "arrow marker" tool. If the VIN number and engine number close to each other you can place more arrows on the picture. To mark every picture by arrows you should click on the orange pencil icon after picture uploading! Blue pencil icon is not allowed to use on VIN number and engine number photos!!!
  • 3. Position of engine number. A futher photo about the whole place of engine. Please open the hood to take this picture. :) Please mark with white-red arrows on the photo (by our arrow marker tool) where is the engine number.
  • 4. Position of VIN plate. A further photo where at everyone can recognize some parts of the vehicle and everyone can notice where is that data plate's exact place on the vehicle The data plate could make by plastic foil (sticker) or metal plate which has to contain the Vehicle's Identification Number. Can be fixed by glue (if it made by PVC) rivet or screw.
  • 5. Characteristic of VIN number. A close up picture of VIN number where at everyone can see perfecty the 17 letters of VIN. It must be a close picture of VIN!
  • 6. Characteristic of Engine number. A close up picture of engine number where at everyone can see perfecty the letters of engine number. It must be a close picture of engine number! You can make and upload more picture about the engine number if you can take just only one picture about this number. We know sometimes it's difficult. Datasheets without engine number will not be allowed! You always have to take picture about engine number and upload it! Unfornately we must delete that datasheet which is without engine number.
  • 7. Look of VIN plate. A close up picture of data plate where at everyone can see perfectly the letters of data plate.
  • 8. Other. You can upload to every datasheet 12+1 pictures. Therefore you can upload other pictures which are help to recognize or find the numbers on the vehicle You can make more picture about the place of engine number. The purpose of the website to show the correct characteristic of the numbers as well. This is a great help to everyone.

How should you fill in the form correctly?

When you start to fill in the uploading form you should write the exact type of the vehichle. When you type in the type of one vehicleDO NOT type in the brand name of the vehicle! For example take an Opel Astra H 1.7 CDTI car. Then you should type in the "Type" field: "Astra H 1.7 CDTI" without "Opel"! The "Opel" brand name to be picked by the brand name selector tree. You can find this "selector tree" at the end of form!
You must type in in the "Type" field:

  1. Exact name of type. E.G. Astra
  2. Name/short code of body E.G. Astra H or BMW E30
  3. Cubic capacity E.G. 1.7
  4. Other details. For example type of fuel injection. E.G. CDTI
  5. DO NOT type in the trim levels! DO NOT type in something like this: GLX, Elegance, etc...

Body Code: The "Body Code" is not the VIN number! Type in the field the body, chassis code if you know. E.g. Astra H --> just an "H" character or in BMW E30 case just an E30 code!

When you type in the engine code DO NOT type in the serial numbers next to the engine code! We need just the engine code where by we can identify the engine. If you can use the AutoData short codes. Usually the engine number contains 3 to 6 characters before the engine serial number.

What does it mean "uploaded datasheet"?

Uploaded datasheet is which our database already contains! For example if we already have an Opel Astra H 1.7 CDTI datasheet you can upload another Opel Astra H 1.6. The most important thing one of short code in the type must be different! You CAN NOT upload another Astra H with same engine! The cubic capacity or the shor code of body must be different! In other case we must delete your datasheet.

When you uploaded a datasheet after then you can modify or delete your own datasheet. You can find the "Modify" or "Delete" buttons when you are logged in at the bottom of your own uploaded datasheet. No one has permission to modify or delete your uploaded datasheet just you have or the site administrator has. If you can find any mistake or bug on our website on one of our datasheet just give us a notice by our contact form.
