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.
There were 2005 E90's as they debuted in Europe as a 2005 model, so there most certainly IS a 2005 E90. This car is a euro car brought over for testing. As for the 10th digit being zero, normal for cars that are not destined for North America. Only Canada/US require the 10th digit to be the model year, europe and most of the world doesn't thus it is only a check digit and it is a "0".
