My car will soon expire. When does the scrappage scheme go 'till? If I need to scrap the car, but can't afford a new one (even with scrappage) are there any ways to take some sort of advantage of the scheme?

Don't forget some manufacturers - I'm thinking of the dreaded Toyota specifically but others too no doubt - are currently offering a "swappage" scheme that is similar to "scrappage", but with their own end dates and less strict criteria about mots and what not, if that's of any use.

Its the end of March 31st, but there is now less than 45,000 places left on it. I want to buy a car through this scheme but I have a horrible feeling it will end before my car will qualify (I haven't owned it a year till the 27th).

Hydunai are doing a good offer, £2k of any new car, Vauxhall are doing £3k of any car but their retail prices are mad anyway. £8K for a bog spec Agila with no central locking or electric windows?

Nissan are doing a good offer on their British built cars, £2k swappge that puts the basic Micra down to £6600.

Your car must also be no near than a V reg. W regs do not qualify even if they are ten years old. When I spoke to the government agency they told me a lot of people are trying to trade in W regs atm and they reckon they might see a dip in sales in March however I think many people will just realise its the last chance and there will be a surge meaning I can't qualify.

Have a look at this link for my details.

I didn't realise Toyota did one, that now means the Aygo is in the equation. I will check out their site.

Where are you with the Fiat R&S - do you want to start that new thread now ?

Not sure if there is a lot of point yet, I can't do anything until I know I qualify and I won't know until the 26th of March. In the meantime I am having to keep the insurance running on the Corsa because its parked on the road and it has to be insured at the point of scrappage.

There are a few questions I have but I will make a new thread at the time probably in the next few days.

You're out of luck for Toyota swappage on an Aygo Rattle - it starts with a Yaris and up.
