So I'm not including my car finance in my IVA, but will this IVA have an impact on me getting any sort of finance once the agreement is finished, if I decided to change my car

For 6 years from the start of the IVA the chances of getting car finance (or much else) are extremely low. During the term of the IVA it is prohibited.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
IVA Completed 23rd July 2013 .... C.C. 10th January 2014

Are you not including the finance with the blessing of your IP or are you just not going to mention it? There may be T&C's in your finance agreement that precludes you from being insolvent. You need to check this. If this is the case then your finance company can terminate the agreement and require you to surrender the car and then you may have to pay a penalty amount!
You have less than no chance of getting further finance for a car once all the paperwork has been signed off and the IVA starts.
Last Payment made 04/12/14. Completion Certificate 25/7/15. IVA company GT. No Issues

If it has been excluded as long as payments will be included once finance is completed, I don't see a problem
