Between around September and December last year, nearly every mainstream manufacturer was offering a scrappage scheme – or a ‘low-emission’ or ‘switch’ scheme as some like to call them.

These schemes see consumers trading in their old, more-polluting cars and vans in place of a shiny new motor, and being financially rewarded with a generous discount for doing so.

This not only reduces pollution, but can help consumers slash their running costs with a new vehicle, as well as receiving up to £7,000 towards a new car or van.

BMW’s scheme – named the ‘BMW Upgrade Scheme’ – works in a slightly different way to the rest, as the money received can only go towards a BMW PCP finance agreement.

BMW gives you a fixed £2,000 towards any of its models that emit under 130g/km, just as long as your car is an EU4 emission compliant, or lower, diesel vehicle registered before January 2011. The scheme runs until June 30, 2018.

Our pick: BMW 3 Series

BMW’s 3 Series saloon has been a popular executive saloon for some time now, and the new model is better than ever with its improved infotainment system and driving ability. Not every 3 Series emits less than 130g/km of CO2, though.
