They're £17. If they bail you out a couple of times they'll not owe you much.

They are actually made from the same material Vanadium Steel so not much difference other than Halfords are more expensive

Exactly, if you're a professional mechanic or using these multiple times every day you're the idiot for considering them in the first place - rather than the hobbyist who uses them a couple of times a year.

Just picked up mine, click and collect, They're good enough for the occasional diy use same as all the cheapo sets I've had but keep misplacing. I would say they are excellent for £17.

Anecdotal.. I've used them to earn my living, and as my hobby since the 70's, I think I'm qualified to give an opinion on that comment having owned tools of all the brands mentioned.

Ditto, for £17 squid I can throw them away if they only last a year.
I think 'some' people are missing the point here. Anyone that is serious about maintaining their vehicles will use a better quality set BUT if you need a cheap set to keep as an emergency something is better than nothing.

Oh and I would class myself as an advanced home mechanic (I've stripped and rebuilt many car bodies/engines with my Halfords Pro sets) but I could do with a cheap set to keep in my 27 Year old Campervan.

Just bought to keep in my campervan too along with the £8 tool kit. £25 for a fairly comprehensive set of emergency tools seems good value to me. Hopefully B&Q wont cancel my order again though. Their stock control systems are not good!

They cancelled my order for this but honored the £8 tool kit.So had to re-order the socket set from another store and then had two stores to drive to. Grrrr

I actually got mine but for 46 pieces It's very very light and each bit feels like It's chocolate wrapped in silver foil.
Finally got round to picking mine up. For a hobbyist using it every now and again it seems a fantastic kit for the money. Everything is weightier than I was expecting at this price. Thanks again OP
