Newest First Generation 147?

Dear all

I bought my 147 1.9jtd16v on a whim without any background research, other than I really liked the look of it and a 1.9 diesel would do quite nicely.
I duly carried out the requisite HPI checks etc and all came back unblemished. I was aware that the first generation 1.9 came with the 8v engine whereas the 16v was fitted to the second generation but as with all these things just took it at being one of those oddities that car manufacturers do.

Anyway, now that I have a 147, my eye is far more tuned into spotting others on the road (even more rare than my Puma) but I have yet to see an original generation with as later plate as mine - (Mar) 04..

I don't think it is a dock side stoarge job because it has the 16v engine...

So my question; what's the newest first generation 147 on the forum?

No prizes will be given; other than kudos and respect of your fellow drivers and peers?

My wifes first 147 was a November 04 on a 54 plate, but was preregistered by the garage and in the Showroom until March 05 when she bought it. By that time the facelift version was out, and although I have seen pre facelift cars on an 05 plate, they will have been built prior to the 05 model year.
