I know camouflage or matt army green colour is definitely a no-no (illegal) for normal cars. Just wondering whether 'matting' the original colour or altogether changing to another matt colour is legal.....just wondering....

Camouflage then sure cannot, because reserve for army mah! As far as I know, other colors can use. There are also matte wrap which I saw in Bangkok Motor show a few years back.

till today I have not seen any guidelines or regulations on car colours allowed/illegal.

Washing a car should be an artform, not a chore.

Change the car colour to another (matt or otherwise) but in the grant says another colour, what are the consequences? I've been googling around and some says you'd get some trouble in insurance claim, road blocks also bahaya, etc. etc.

I rephrase my question then: what are the consequences of changing the colour of your car without informing the authorities and changing it in the grant as well?

Bro, basically if you change the colour of the car, when you sell it off , there is a problem when you want to re-register the car under the new owner. What will happen is then you will proceed to JPJ to register the car under the new colour first before the car can be transferred to the new owner.

As for JPJ summon, first time i heard it. 4 years i drove my car with another colour going through all kind of road blocks, never been questioned before, the only question i receive was what colour what my car ... and why so shiny tongue.gif

As for Insurance, there is no reason why they should refuse to pay out the insurance claims if you can prove that the engine and car serial number matches the log book.

That is because they never check car colors, but most of the time is the road tax. tints and other heavy mods... smile_tongue.gif
