Car Facts - Tell your car's story

Car Facts is a company which has set up a website where you can share your Seven's personalised trivia with anyone interested.

https://www.factsdisc.com/

It resembles the look of the UK’s old paper tax disc and once displayed on your windscreen or disc holder, it allows any passer-by, event visitor, or fellow enthusiast to use their smartphone camera and scan its unique code to view your motor’s personalised trivia. 

The company has given Club members a substantial discount, using the exclusive Club discount code, found in the Member's Benefits area here:-

I saw these on cars at at CARFEST.

It a neat idea for shows, but I'm not sure I'd want an old-style tax disc on my car day to day.

Within a closed group for rare or unusual cars, I am in favour. But not in a public open space.

In particular examples maintaining history and provenance enhances value.

I'm thinking 21s here, but it could apply to the limited edition Superlights for example. Just think how interesting the special edition of LowFlying on the Gary May cars was.

#3 My first thought, too. 

Decidedly unsure about that one!

#3 my thoughts as well!!

And I have an aero fitted - wouldn't want it messing up the CF!!!

Too much info freely available - not comfortable with that I'm afraid. It's a NO from me! Thumb Down

It seems that you have full control over what you disclose in the information? So for instance you are able to document specification and photos only if you choose to? I suppose you can also remove the disc when not displaying your car too? 

Im interested about how they are covering costs.  It is a one off fee and uses the web and storage etc ... there must be some other sort of financial benefit to the creators?

If you try scanning the examples on the website you'll find various popup adverts appearing at the bottom of your screen
