    It means it's the second half of the years model range. As such, there may have been slight spec changes, engine availability, trim upgrades etc.

    It's also a bit misleading, as the 2005 model year would have been available from about october '04!

    No, it means exactly what it says. 2005.5 means it was manufactured May 2005.

    Oh! it's just that every other manufacturer seems to do it the way I explained! For instance, the other day, I had an audi brochure with 2007.5 model years!

    I'll bow to your superior knowlege!

    I'm not buying an audi btw!! I was looking at one for my dad!

    Sorry Andrew, I'm talking at slight cross-purposes with you. Yes, a MY 2005.05 will have been made a bit before that actual date, but to the spec that they will be listing in any MY2005.05 literature - probably a few months before as you said.

    I'm pretty sure "2005,5MY" means modelyear 2005 and a half !
    A modelyear starts after summer holidays and the first half (at GM/Opel) goes until December or January; that moment the second half starts, usually with slight changes, new pricelist and/or optionslist.
    So a MY 2005,5 is modelyear 2005 build between winter and summer-closing of the factory.
    Only the dealer can see what month a car was build based on the last 5 digits of the VIN.
    But if the 10th digit of your VIN matches the digit on your windows (the one after the dots), you'll know your car is a MY ,5 (unless your windows have been changed )
