I don't think it's anything to worry about, I read about something very similar where a new car in very dark metallic blue was listed as grey (or something similar) on the V5. The only issue might be if it got stolen and the Police end up looking for a bright red car
I agree, the problem is that these companies who do the HPI check are not allowed to access the government systems. To my knowledge every X days, they purchase a copy of the database, and then update theirs.
So if my car was stolen, it may not appear on a hpi check for 30 days. The other issue is that when they buy a copy of the database, they can input their data incorrectly.
