Trading in my old Clio - what are my options?

Hi! Just a few quick questions. I have a 99 Renault Clio for the past two years and it's a great little car but starting to show its age.

I don't know a hell of a lot about scrappage so I'm hoping you might be able to help! Do all dealers offer scrappage deals? Would I get a deal on a 99 Renault and do they have a set price or would a trade in suit better?

I am hoping to get a newer car but not a brand spankin' new one so would I even get a trade in with the Clio?

Where to get the best deal on a new Kia Rio?

I'm interested in buying a new Kia Rio, diesel, using the scrappage deal. What is the best price I should expect to get? And would I be better dealing with a main Kia dealer as opposed to an Opel dealer? The main dealer is a 40-minute drive from me.

Can I trade in two cars on the scrappage scheme?

Can I trade my 2006 car with my 2002 model for scrappage in exchange for a new car? I have a 2006 Avensis and a 2002 Toyota Corolla hatchback to trade.

I want to get a good diesel car. I've clocked up around 75,000 miles in two and half years.

What garages will look at this type of trade?
