First you have to realize it's the Brits! Then we all stop worrying about it and move on...

I remember having this same discussion over on the E60 board. On some levels it makes sense. You have to put your government buearocrat hat on, but if the car is sold in 2007, it is a 2007. If it's sold in 2008, it's a 2008.

The marketing folks at the car makers don't work or think that way. And frankly, not many other countries do it as literal as the Brits.
