ANPR machines are configured to give a summary of vehicle details - one of which is the colour. If the colour is different - the Police will think you have cloned another vehicle's identity, and will give you a hard time.

Do you fancy a colur change because you're fed-up with the colour the car or is the bodywork a bit tired?


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
