BRUSSELS, May 31 (Reuters) - Belgium's largest car distributor D'Ieteren stuck on Thursday to its forecast of single-digit percentage growth of its net profit despite a more positive view of car sales this year. D'Ieteren said it maintained its expectation from February that the current consolidated pre-tax profit would grow by between 5 and 10 percent in 2007. However, it said Belgian new car registrations were likely to total 495,000 this year, compared with a previous forecast of 490,000.
