Its odd because in the UK we dont work on this model year stuff to determine car values or age, it really is based on the date of registration. So yes, a 2008 that has just sat around, that gets registered in 2010 is a 2010 and the warranty naturally runs accordingly. Now obviously pre facelift cars that get registered later, to the trained eye, are out of sync with the model updates, but for all intents and purposes you are right. Crucially as most M owners know what they are getting, these cars just become great deal presentations from the supplying dealer at time of purchase!!
