New for nearly new

Following your advice we bought a Hyundai i10 under the scrappage scheme last July. Today we had a 'phone call from the salesman offering us a new i10 in p/x for our old one and it would only cost us £499, delivery in March 2010. We think this is a good deal considering a service is due at just over £100. Is there a catch?

Swap an 09 for a 10 reg for just £499? That is a brilliant deal. Remember, you then get a fresh 5-year warranty. It's almost impossible to beat a first year depreciation of just £499. Sadly, there have only been limited numbers of Hyundais available on this offer.
