Overtype/input for lookup field

I am relatively new to SharePoint and Nintex, however I've designed a few workflows and forms that seem to be going well. 

So I have a user that would like a simple lookup that then pulls some other data in with it, the primary 'key' being the 'VIN'. The lookup is working fine currently but they have a few thousand records that may be added into the list, is there a way of doing the lookup with a text field? Due to the volume of records they obviously don't want to have to scroll through thousands of VINs. Is there a way they could overtype?


If not, is there a way they could enter the VIN and have it validated against the Vin list? 


I'm using Sharepoint 2013 currently. 


Thanks in advance,
