    Mate of mine was looking at a Calibra a few years back, buying from a garage. I asked for the V5 and called directory enquiries with the details off the V5. The previous owner was more than happy to explain why he sold it.
    At the end of the day If it was you would you be happy for the new owner of your car to call you and ask about it, If it was me id have no issue with calling them.

    I wouldn't recommend a phone call, a letter with SAE would be better

    That'll be the reason he's ex-directory. Try M8internt's idea but as its 2011 id ask him to email you or include your telephone numbers instead.
