European vs. US Vin numbers: Help

The following vehicle ID plate is for a car for sale on Ebay. The most curious thing about it is the 8/00 build date. I thought they closed the factory during the month of August.

Second is the Vin number: It matches my number exactly with the exception of "0" before the "y" (this letter is the year 00, X would be for 99 and so forth) which must be the interior. The only difference between my car and this one is the interior; exclusive here and mine's extended. The last five numbers are the serial number.

This car was built 218 cars after my July build. My question is: What are the European vin numbers like? Could some of our overseas friends upload a picture of their plate? Are these serial numbers just for US production or consecutive in order for all M5 builds. Persons with July or August builds would be best.

Thanks

Well, my german is pretty bad.. alright, non-existant, but I think GMBH is an abbreviation for what we in the states would put as Co. or Inc.
I'm sure someone who knows German will chime in soon.
