Only slight downside is you have to over or underspend (£20=60 or £15=45), then pay the difference or receive no refund if the latter


I think it depends on the garage manager and perhaps their manager too. These chain places will set sales targets and probably award bonuses to staff/managers for hitting or exceeding them: some managers will give in to the temptation to make sure every customer spends a bit extra, this gives them a bit extra in their pay packet.

Based on personal experience i would avoid. Told me I needed a new catalytic converter at £600 but it turned out to be just the manifold gasket that had gone. Saying that a local independant garage also tried it on with work that didn't need doing. But as said above I also found their attitude to be bad, making you feel like you shouldn't question their (questionable) knowledge.

Sorry, cold from me. Yes it's a deal, but it's not a new one and it doesn't expire. There are some good clubcard 3 for 1 deals on there but I agree with the others. There's nothing more expensive than a cheap MOT.

Looks like a great deal until they MOT your car and more importantly your wallet!

One of two ways, you can get an external window mount, inside the car you would then run the cable neatly down the A Pillar, in my install (Fiesta) into the glovebox where the control unit resides.

Or disconnect the roof aerial from your existing FM Radio and get an adapter if needed.

The advantage to us is having 6 Music. I hate OEM tailored car stereos, even the software in our Ford meant we could not swap it out with an OEM DAB headunit as the ECM says "no", meaning a fit of the Highway 300. We have no need for bluetooth support personally, the head unit in the car already does that, so a tidy solution.

I've managed to damage the clips once by doing that.I was going to add a PS to say actually most cars are fitted with a perfectly good fm radio which is stereo and works well everywhere in cars. The BBC were going to turn fm radio off when the sales of DAB radios exceeded the sales of fm radios, fortunately they haven't done that yet. The only other advantage to this (beside the Internet access) is I think hands free calling which can be done with a much simpler device just plugged iinto the cigar lighter for a much lower price and which gives you usb charging as well

I use my local Halfords (Stockport Green Lane) every year for our car MOTs, never been stung yet. Always pleasant and in some cases, like last year went above and beyond. The bolt holding my battery down had been lost. It was replaced free of charge and car passed it's test.

I'm a Hastings customer who got the email say I had a gift. Strangely I wasn't expecting to have to spend money to get their 'gift', I'm pretty sure that's not the definition.

Cold from me.

have used halfords for years for my MOT's, they usually pass first time or fail on something that I know is boarderline and I know needs work doing anyway.

it's not halfords fault if a bunch of housewives take they clapped out pieces of crap in for an MOT having not done a single shred of maintenance since the last MOT.

But I guess it all depends on what your local place is like, get my tyres down there also, they are invariably the cheapest for branded tyres for my car and they have them replaced in a jiffy whilst I have a free coffee.

Appreciate the feedback bonzobanana. I've opted for the Boardman, hoping it will be a better option.

Just don't see the point of this bike. The 700c wheels should make the bike faster and more efficient although slightly weaker/less robust but that increase speed and efficiency is ruined by fitting basic front suspension forks. If you want greater comfort you'd be far better off with the Subway which will be a lot more reliable too over the long term. I suspect even off road the Subway's stronger wheels with larger profile tyres will still be far better than this bike with naff suspension and much weaker wheels. Sometimes retailers configure a bike that will be popular with people but really people shouldn't want this spec.

The Boardman is a nice bike. For the £150 more it is much better bike. I considered buying one a few months back when it was, IIRC, £450 but my local Halford store only had a very knackered / scratched one on display and the staff did not seem that interested in selling.

But if you have a good store nearby and, once you have checked one out for any sign of damage, if you can find a good one of these then it is worth it. The Boardman will probably last you several years longer so you need to do some calculations of how much that works out per week. Probably worth stretching to the £400.

I don't recall seeing it as low as £400 before.

Child seats are grouped by weight, so age doesn’t need to come into it r …Child seats are grouped by weight, so age doesn’t need to come into it really. My daughter is small for her age, at 3 years old she was well under 15kg so legally she couldn’t have used a high backed booster, even if the ‘blurb’ said it was suitable from 3 years. A high backed booster is the only choice of seat for a child 25kg plus, up to that point you can use a rear or a forward facing one. So seats that cover 9-18kg and are forward facing only should come with a warning that they are the least safe choice of seat for a child of that weight range (regardless of age). Rear facing seats are the safest choice for all collisions. In side impact situations there is usually some pre-impact braking, which for a forward facing child means them being thrown forward out of their seat and out of the side impact protection zone it offers. A rear facing child in that pre-impact situation will be pushed back into their seat and better protected. If hit from the rear the initial impact would send a rear facing child out of their seat (towards the back of the car), but the forces are a lot less than a head-on impact because both vehicles are travelling in the same direction when one is hit from behind by another. Head-on and side-impact collisions together account for about 95% of all collisions, so it makes sense to use a seat which offers the best protection in those situations.


I hope you have posted the same on the other deal i have been quoting as that seat says it fits from 15kg !

Also you should maybe go and tell Halfords all this,I'm simply posting a deal and yet ive got people trying to tell what's what like I'm the one selling it,and to top it off ive got people with double standards saying the deal ive posted is not that safe but the one they post is,yet it can accommodate the same WEIGHT !

Deal i have posted goes upto a WEIGHT of 18KG,ellie27's deal seat starts from 15KG,that's an overlap of 3KG.
So a child of 15KG could sit in either seat according to the spec sheetsyet you give her post a thumbs up to her saying i have got it wrong and she also says herself she wouldn't recommend a front facing until over 4 years old,but then say to me it's about weight and not age,but again you agree with what she says.

I would bet money on it that everyone making these comments about what is best,don't drive around in a car that is the top of it's class for safety.

In side impact situations there is usually some pre-impact braking, which for a forward facing child means them being thrown forward out of their seat and out of the side impact protection zone it offers. A rear facing child in that pre-impact situation will be pushed back into their seat and better protected. If hit from the rear the initial impact would send a rear facing child out of their seat (towards the back of the car), but the forces are a lot less than a head-on impact because both vehicles are travelling in the same direction when one is hit from behind by another. Head-on and side-impact collisions together account for about 95% of all collisions, so it makes sense to use a seat which offers the best protection in those situations.

You have got it all wrong! Your seat is 9 months to 4 yrs approx, mine is …You have got it all wrong! Your seat is 9 months to 4 yrs approx, mine is age 4-12yrs approx. Most folk who would consider buying your seat have children from 9 months to 4 yrs it is highly unlikely anyone with a 4 yr old would want to buy it. Children under 4 are safer rear facing. Not sure what point you are trying to make? The seat I posted is not made for children under 4.


No you have got it wrong.

Who says you HAVE to buy this seat for a 9 month old ? someone might be looking for a cheap seat to see their baby for a year,from the age of 3-4.

You say you don't know what my point is,we'll let me say it AGAIN.

You come on my deal saying that this seat is not as good as a rear facing one,which is fair enough comment,but I then notice that you posted a deal yourself for a seat that can accommodate a 3 year old and that is forward facing,yet you don't warm people on your own deal.It is irrelevant if you THINK that people will only buy my seat for a 9 month old baby and your deal would only be bought by people wanting it for a child over 4.And that brings me to my next point,your seat you posted is from 3 years ! not 4 years as you say.

So going by what you say,it's likely that people with a 3 year old would buy it to see them up until the maximum age of 12 years.

Your deal here - hotukdeals.com/dea…147


Here is the age range on the seat you posted -

Looks like 3 years to me.

So please explain how the seat you posted is ok for a 3 year old but the one I posted isn't ? And you even said it yourself in your last post !

The group is irrelevant,the seat I posted can fit a 3-4 year old,the seat you posted can fit a 3-4 year old,my deal you are basically saying isn't very safe,yet you did not say any such thing on your own deal.

How do you know that someone might see this deal and want it for their 3 year old,but your comment makes out like it's dangerous,yet you are more than happy to promote your own deal for a forward facing seat to someone who might want it for a 3 year old.
