Nice car, welcome back.

Funnily enough I had a boss once that was involved in a car crash with his Leon FR. The front plate started "AD56" and the rear plate started "AJ56" and none of us noticed. It was only caught when the police attended the scene of the accident and pointed it out. No issue, the car was all legal and the lease company had made a blunder.
A cousin of mine had a brand new Jag E-Pace a few years ago and it was only noticed about three months later that the registration on the front was different to the one on the back.

Just one character I believe but makes all the difference.

Correct! DG65 MVM is the one for this, DG56 MVM is for a blue Toyota!
Indeed, I’m no car expert, but I can for a certainty the car in the photos above isn’t a Blue Toyota Yaris. Something not looking right here, @Tommy1963 might be best getting this checked out before you enjoy your ST too much. Fingers crossed it’s a genuine mistake on someone’s part, and not something dodgy.
hi Wayne , so great to see a few people noticed and well done to the eagle eyed in our community , it did indeed take me a couple of days to notice i was driving around on an incorrect number plate which correctly stated did in fact belong to a 2006 Toyota Yaris , totally the garages fault for the mistake or typo error but that wouldn,t have helped me much if i,d have gotten pulled by the long arm of the law , it should of course have been DG65MVM and not DG56MVM , what a **** up lol , got an apology and they changed the plates for new correct ones , once again thanks everybody for having my back , don,t mind showing the full plate info as the Tangerine Scream beast will have a new private registration on as soon as the paperwork arrives , oh and thanks for all the kind welcome messages , it,s good to be back ! 😀

Hi Tommy, glad you managed to get the plates situation sorted, and that it turned out to be a genuine mistake, rather than anything sinister.
Enjoy your ST, look forward to seeing more updates of your ST journey and any mods, upgrades, etc you get done.

hi Jason , yes i thought you were having a dig at Birmingham lol , glad i don,t stay in a big city as i,m too used to my small village and country surroundings , plenty of great uncluttered roads to fully enjoy the ST on , oh and yes bud i,m convinced it,s standard as never noticed it boosting that high , already got a list as long as your arm of things i want but usual problem of shallow pockets will slow the modding process down for some time lol , thanks again for your comments .
regards - Tommy 😀
