My car's in need of a replacement clutch kit along with other bits and pieces. It's 11 years old now and I could do with a new, but cheap upgrade. I may have got lucky with it screwing up now, as it looks like the government's £2,000 scheme for scrapping an older car will come into effect on the 22nd. Right? Is this almost a certainty now?
I've seen an '08 Matiz at a dealership for £3995, as it's registered less than a year ago (June '08) from what I can gather it could qualify, taking the price down to £1995 after I've scrapped the old car. Factoring in insurance and tax, this is a fantastic deal as there is at least £400 that needs to go into my old car to get it going again.
Would anyone know if it's as simple as waiting for the 22nd, then doing whatever has to be done to get a scrapping certificate for my car, then presenting it to (any) dealership in the UK?
I haven't taken notice of this upcoming scheme until now, as this isn't really the sort of thing that'd benefit anyone outside of the car industry or someone who has a car that has just messed up big time like mine!
