    Sorry, my bad, no aspersions cast on anyone's previous reply. The incorrect reply was mine, as after I posted a reply I wasn't sure I was correct. I replied that the facelift Vectra C was built for MY2006, but production started sometime during autumn of 2005. Similarly the Insignia A was built for MY2009, but production started sometime during autumn of 2008, hence registrations of the newer models on a 55 and 58 plate respectively, and 'late' registrations of the previous models on a 56 or an 09 plate respectively.

    Yep, after a few brandies I doubted what I had posted was correct. LOL What is true is that whenever a new version of a car comes out, some of the 'runouts' are still being registered. I now have a Insignia 'B', which allegedly came out on a 17 plate, but I haven't seen any on a 17 plate, but I have seen 17-plate Insignia 'A's.
