in my sales dept we can only run Canadian vehicles on our system. I could have a parts guy run it if I were at work. So it is a 2006 like I said. There's no such thing as a 2005 E90, at all. The 2006 model year started with spring 2005 production. The 10th digit being 0 is still odd for me though. Good job on the info.

Whatever cars come here are almost always available in Europe a year earlier, I am sure the e9x was available in 2005.
I really doubt it was owned by a diplomat. Read the bottom of the page, it says the car was here for testing.
