    Gov't Car Scrappage Scheme

    Morning,

    Anyone used this scheme yet? Whats the best offer people have found? Currently got an old Fiesta, looking at the options of trading it in. Anyone got any useful tips or experience of it?

    id like some tips too ;-)
    sorry for gatecrashing

    A lot of the deals seem to be topping at the end of June.
    I've got a Panda Active Eco on order for £4995 - won't hold my breath until i physically get it.
    but if you can spend more then its fairly easy to get 2-3-4 grand off a new car anyway. or so i've been told...
    Personally, i only think the scrapage deal is worth it if you are looking for a really small cheap car...

    search for scrappage under advanced search. many long threads all about this already.

    I bought a new ford fiesta zetec 3 door manual 1.4 petrol with metallic paint. You get a £500 saving, they didnt charge me for the paint (normally £425) and free bluetooth which is availiable until 30th June.

    I used the scrappage scheme with a p reg ford ka. The old car has to be in your name as does the new one.

    No chance of 0% finance with the scrappage as the car company are already giving you £1000 free and are also less lenient with the price reductions they can offer. So the scheme doesnt offer as great a deal as you first think....Got mine for £10,320 OTR paying over 4 years 7.9% APR with £1000 optional deposit.

    12 week delivery!

    Almost all companies are participating in the scheme so you do have a large selection of cars to choose from.

    ford in slough had on the forecourt brand new fiestas for under 10k on 09 plate..... will investigate and let you know, is it too late to cancel your order?

    yeah have a look at that if you could... you can have some all important rep.

    Mine will be a 59 plate but the 12 week delivery is such a killer
