Ideal for travel on the continent, where spare bulbs can be a legal requirement.

Not the most durable H7 by all accounts. Fine as a spare until you can get a decent replacement for next to nothing over t'interweb. At least it'll stop you getting ripped off on the high street! The rest of the bulbs are alright, though, and worth a fair few quid on their own.

I've been using these for about 6 months now, they dont last very long. As I have had to change the main headlight bulb about every 5/6 weeks. Probably works out cheaper buying from car spares shops TBH, might be ok for people that dont do much night time driving?

okay to buy for get you home spares but as the other guy said dont expect the headlight ones to last long. We had one blow before we got home after changing on the road side....just two miles! Other bulbs seem okay

you say £1 OBVIOUSLY...

There's pseudo-admin bizzybodies on here that would have pulled you up for not including it!!

Not always obvious. I bought a blister pack of two wiper blades in Poundland and got charged two quid. Yes, it was two blades, but in one pack, not sold separately.

So they might charge £7.00 for this bulb set then!!! oO

bad quality dont last long

But ok for spares in the boot for emergencies!

Every year just before my MOT a head lamp bulb goes and I have been paying £16 each for Halfords own brighter than normal replacements. I gave up the last time and replaced with the ones from Poundland (Lifetime Cars) and so far no problems in over six months and I cant tell the difference in brightness.

I agree with mossketo - the headlight bulb in the set is of a very poor quality - but all the others added together still worth £1 - try pricing them up in Halfords.

Had mine in Astra for 3 months, still working touch wood .

These are always £1.

It's a pound shop!

Normal price. Cold

They're fine for use if a bulb blows as you're just about to sell your car.

Waste of time! Usual poundshop rubbish - and I do buy from them so not being snobby - usually stuff for the kids.Go to your local independant car spares dealer rather than Halfords - if it's like mine the local guy will be cheaper. Support the little shops!!
Halfords are cheaper on the jet washers and larger stuff but I think you'll find the little things are much cheaper locally.

Good set to keep you legal on the continent where you are required to have a spare set. However, on most modern cars it's such a pain to replace a bulb that doing so with ones which won't last long is probably not a good idea.

Never heard such rubbish, i do all my shopping at poundland. Its top quality stuff and a lot of the items are sold in the big chain stores, I am a tradesman and all of my tools come from poundland, i swear by Rolson and Blackspur

If , like me , you have a ford focus mk1 you would be pretty annoyed if you had just spent an hour changing a bulb for it to blow again soon after. Yes that is how long a bulb change takes on a focus - you have to remove the battery and the battery holder to get the damned thing out.

To be honest. Even the best quality bulbs are blowing quick at the moment. Its due to the huge amount of potholes in the roads left from the snow. The roads are in such a bad state they just shake the filiments in the bulbs to bits. A good price really HOT. (but the bulb set in Aldi this thursday is a better quality buy with two of each bulb in the pack!)

I used to use these kits on my old 306 which had very easy bulbs to change. I know they don't last that long (6 months on average in my experience) but it gave me time to order a premium replacement as needed on-line or pop to Makro to avoid paying twice the going rate for, IMHO, a sub-standard Halfords own bulb just because I'm desperate. By my method, it's a money saver more than a bargain but definitely heat added from me.

I have found Halfords to be expensive too. I now shop for my car's requirements from

Euro Car Parts as their prices are quite competitive than Halfords and most other Motor factor shops.

Won't buy if there's no "Max Power" logo on it

Euro Car Parts are vastly cheaper than Halfords for like-for-like products, and the standard prices are usually cheaper than other motor factors. Most traders using a motor factors will get a big a discount off the standard pricing, but as a man-off-the-streeet they are often quite expensive unless you can talk them into giving you a discount.

I have a Merc & Used Euro-CAr-Parts for 5 years now for full brakes, car battery, o2 sensor, fuel sensor & lots of other parts. Being a HUKD member I shopped around everywhere & Euro-Car-Parts were the cheapest.

I think your sarcasm may be missed by some.
I spent most of my apprentice wages on CeKa or Elliot Lucas pliers and snips, snap on screwdrivers and other rather expensive tools. Over twenty five years later they're still going. I bought a Rolson wire stripper which broke as it was trying to cut its first 0.75mm flex.
I'll stick to colouring books and coloured pencils ;-)
