Ok so sent V5 off to DVLA to register as a Mazda 250 GTO Spyder in Blue, as that is the predominant colour now, when my car was imported in 1998 from Japan it was a Eunos Roadster in Green but was registered as a Mazda MX5, the DVLA have sent me a new V5 same as the old one (in white as I was driving it in gel coat) and contact details for Mazda UK stating they can not change the model description unless the manufacturer agrees saying I need to get them to confirm this in witting quoting the DVLA/SMMT make and model codes. As far as I know Mazda UK are one of the few manufactures not to recognise grey imports, that was a while ago and related to an imported Mazda RX 8. No Idea what to do now as I don't think Mazda UK will help as they did not even build the car in the first place it was a branch of Mazda JP as Eunos done for marketing reasons as it sounded more European.
