From April the 15th (2009), if you buy a new car (véhicule neuf), you will have a new "carte grise"... orange !
If you buy a second-hand car, you'll have a new carte grise only from June the 15th.
What will it change for you ?
Nearly nothing !
You'll have to go to the préfecture to obtain this document, and if you have any question, contact your préfecture.
