    Possibly a car that was "left behind" unregistered at a dealer or the factory?

    Yeh the last B5's were built in early-mid 2001, so most would have ended up on a Y plate, but left over stock etc would have continued to be sold.

    Theres a few RS4's on 51 too.

    I nearly bought a misano red b5 rs4 on a 52 plate! I was told it was a pace car therefore not registered untill very late, not sure if this is true. I will have a look for the pictures to confirm!
