2017 BMW diesel scrappage scheme – how does it work and do you qualify?

BMW’s scrappage scheme has finished. Check out our full list of scrappage schemes to see which are still available.

BMW has announced details of a diesel scrappage scheme that gives buyers trading in older cars an additional £2,000 saving towards a new BMW. It’s only being offered to drivers who are trading in diesels that meet Euro-4 standards or earlier – that means if your car was built before January 2011 it could qualify for the trade-in deal.

What is Euro 4?

Car emissions are classified against a scale set by the European Commission. Essentially, every couple of years the emissions regulations are tightened to help improve air quality in Europe. The 2017 scrappage schemes generally require your old car to have a Euro 4 or earlier rating – so produced before 31 December 2010.
