European Car Fax

Just wondering if there is a European version of Car Fax? Looking for some history on my Euro 1980 280se. Wondering what the approximate mileage was before the speedometer was changed and stuff like that. Not interested enough to pay a lot of money on it as I already own the car, just kind of curious to see what I could find out. Perhaps even find the original owners and send them some photos.
1991 Mazda Miata 174000
1991 Subaru 189,000 Winter beater

got rid of:
1984 VW Vanagon 195,000
1976 350SE Euro 185,000 KM
1973 280SE 4.5 (boy do I regret that)
1980 280SE European W126 4 speed manual (miss it)
1989 BMW 735iL 119000 (good riddance)

In the UK, yes there is a verson of Carfax (at least what I guess Carfax is).

I doubt if your car is UK registered- you guys have the steering wheel on the wrong side y'know - but it could be worth a try.

There are two major players; HPI, and the AA (Automobile Association).
The AA web site is
HPI is associated with Equifax, search for HPI on Google.

Only thing is, the online checks use the UK registration number, which you won't have. But I think th AA will be able to check on the VIN.
Long shot but worth a go.
