And lockdown? what does this mean?
The build date is the month and year the car rolled off the production line and the compliance date is the month and year the car left the bond store to go to the dealership. It's not the date the vehicle is registered. This is why you will find new unregistered cars on the BMW forecourt that could be a couple of months passed the compliance date.And also why dealers need to move cars off the lot before the new year comes round otherwise they're technically sitting on a year old car.
Sorry have never heard the term lockdown before.
