    So according to one of the guides on here that help you find out your cars year of manufacture my car was produced in 2009? But it's registered as a 2008.
    Another stupid question im sure, could someone explain?

    I've looked at both of those guides and according to the VIN my accord was indeed produced in 2009, how would it be possible that the car has a 2008 registration on it though?

    Yeah that is fine I have a MY*13 but car is a 12 Reg, the current year model is MY15. Year models always run 6 months in advance of the calender year.

    Take the air filter off and check the three dials embosed (DMY) on the internals.:Niceone:

    So. I looked at the dials on the inside of the air filter, there are four.

    1. 2
    2. 5
    3. 1
    4. 08

    I'll take an educated guess as to the fourth dial '08' referring to MY..

    Haha, that's awesome. Slightly coincidental too, as I got the car on the 9th of February this year. Might have picked it up on it's birthday! :Grin:
