But when it's closed it looks a bit cheap and rubbish so don't think anybody would try and steal it. IMO

Never get Halfrauds to fit anything electrical in your car - ever. Never ever ever, under any circumstances - ever.

You can see the ripspeed logo though so I would think anyone who was looking to nick a car radio would know what this is. I prefer the idea that at least most people would not bother nicking something that they can't make use of.

Mmmh... they did a brilliant job (for £25 or so) fitting my first CD/MP3 player ;-)

I think anyone educated enough to steal stereos will know the models. And ripspeed is basically Halfords own brand, and Ive only read bad things about them. As with most things, you get what you pay for.
#11
I have to say that i have had one of these players in my car for over a year now. I have only had a few skipping problems with mp3's and the video has frozen a handful of times.

For what i paid for the price of this unit i am very happy with it.
I think that this deal is a bargain.

VOTED HOT !!

Fairy 'nuff. But when my bro in law heard a bang outside his house and went to see what it was, he found the 2 Halfrauds guys had somehow triggered his airbag, and they were trying to stuff it back into the steering wheel like he wouldnt notice! :whistling:
Despite numerous letters and phonecalls Halfrauds never accepted responsibilty for it, despite the fact the car was stationary, the airbag was fine beforehand and they were the only monkeys near it at the time. Crikey, for £25 I'll come round and 'install' (unplug old one, plug in new one) the head unit. In fact - I'll do it for £20!
#13
For what it's worth, if an electrical change can trigger the airbag, it wasn't "fine beforehand". Although Halfords were probably unlucky to be working on it at the time, and they should probably just pay up as good customer services, it's highly likely that your brother in law was lucky that it happened then and not when he was driving.
#14
I certainly wouldn't trust Halfords to install anything. My dad was once visiting the Halfords in Edinburgh, walking towards the entrance he noticed a Halfords lacky attempting to install a new battery for someone. Except, he'd put the battery in the wrong way round - the car manufacturer had at least made the wires only stretch to fit to the terminals on a battery fitted the right way round, but the guy wasn't going to let that stop him and apparently he was pulling on the wires as hard as he could to try and make the terminals connect the wrong way round. I think my dad actually pointed out his mistake and he quickly corrected it, but if he'd managed to connect those terminals the wrong way round he'd have fried much of the cars electrics (possibly including the radio and engine management) even without the ignition being on.

So yeah, I'd be willing to believe Halfords had set off the airbags and they had been fine beforehand. Airbag computers tend to go off fairly readily if the right conditions are met, including unusual electrical pulses or odd sensor readings, as there's no saying what condition the rest of the car will be in during a crash. When you're working on a car dashboard often the advice is "carefully detach the airbag computer from the wiring harness" and possibly even "remove it from the car" as they have an internal power supply, too...

Amen to that. Cheers.

Same with me would never use Halfords
#17
Bet none of you will use kwik-fit either.
#18
halfords fitted something for me once and was fine. the only reason i got them to fit it was because it was free. However never pay for it. It is such an easy things to do. Its as simple as pluging a connection in.

Also thats a good price for any dvd player with screen, however the ripspeed ones are not great quality. Both reliability andsound quality.

I've used Kwik-fit in the past for new tyres on both my previous Porsches and my current Audi RS4. No problems ever.

That said.....my mate had a problem with his BMW Z4M, where they scratched one of his brand new (2 day old replacement wheels). They paid up for a replacement after a little 'encouragment'.
#20
I paid £200 for a radio to be fitted by them, they made me pay an extra £30 for an adaptor, and he still couldn't install it after an hour. He then said my car (a clio at the time) wasn't a mainstream car and they didn't support them. And no refund as the box had been opened, useless.
#21
i got one of these last year, its rubbish, has no fast forward of rewind options

or at least it doesn't work on mine
#22
plus if you read its Refurbished anyway
#23
I used to work at halfords and its not the same place it was 8 years ago or so when it was owned by Boots. You obviously get some good and bad people still, but now there is no training. It used to be really structured. it's a case of learning on the job. I've seen some right cowboys in my time to be fair a few really good people too. £25 for fitting is a rip off for most cars. some can be a pain in the ass, with little room to work in or the dash needs to be stripped.

Overall id be reluctant to get them to fit anything, but suppose there are cowboys in every company
#24
If this unit can be played/viewed by the driver when the car is in motion then it is illegal to use it.

Even if it is a lesser known make it will still be good for trading for a £5 deal with the local drug dealer so don't tempt fate by leaving it on display.


Now who mentioned Kwik-Fit? a place I will never go again after my requested single wheel balance was met with "ooooh, it's not the balance for that sir, you need tracking and four new tyres!" I went to a reputable tyre dealer two miles away and they rebalanced the tyre that was causing the problem and said that another tyre did need changing as it was quite close to teh limit but the others were fine.
#25
I wonder if they'd wire up an ISO connector in my Scirocco if I paid them for 'fitting' ;)

I really hope no one ever uses Kwik Fit.
#27
I have never trusted Halfords since i put my car in there for a 'full brake service' because my brakes were spongey . When i picked the car up the first time i needed the brakes the pedal went to the floor and i was lucky i was not going at speed and was able to use my handrake.
On return to the shop they found out who had done the work and he nonchantely muttered ' oh yeah the seals have gone in the servo and we don't cover that in a ful brake service '
#28
Dont Let Halfords Fit Anything They Are Unable To I Dont Think They Could Fit A Lightbulb!

Still around for £154.98 delivered

Not to steep on your toe's EDI but I went in Halfords looking at the Players, Liked one on the Ripspeed once mainly due to its SD Slot, and the Halford guy went along the lines of saying " If you buy any of the RipSpeed players you are just waisting your money, we are allways getting them back"

Which as no others had the SD Slot I left with out buying anything :thumbsup:

While Kudos to the guy for being honest ( i was surprised at it ) if there own staff try to turn you away from there own brand must be something amiss :)
