If need be I can call home with the VIN to see exactly when it was put on the road, but as all postcode licence plates beginning with a Y are Yorkshire region, the likelihood that this car was registered at Thorne (BMW Distribution UK) is an almost certainty - it was no doubt on the road June/July of 2007!!

Somebody else asked a question that was not answered, if a 2008 is registered in 2007 it is a 2007 MY in the UK. So if a 2007 is registered in 2010 does that make it a 2010 MY?
