If you drive in France, it is a legal requirement to have one of these. It is also required to have a high visibility jacket WITHIN the car in case you break down since November 1st. 90 euro fine on the spot if you don't have one.

well pointed out castortroy

These look like the ones I got one of from Home Bargains - think it was 99p. But the exact same ones are something like £20 in Halfrauds. Still a good buy as chances are no Home Bargains stores will have any left now.

Similar in Spain, you need 2 of them, time they were the same here.

Good post but worth pointing out that Lidls have deals on for a lot of car parts from 6 Nov that people may be interested in such as wiper blades, headlight bulbs etc that are better value than Halfords etc.

Will personally be getting a couple of sets of bulbs, wipers, 3-Way In-Car power adaptor (including USB power point) and a compressor if they are available locally.

And one you wished you had not left on the windowsill :Doh

Very good deal. Just bought one a couple of weeks ago. The cheapest I could see in UK was about 7 quid although they were going for about 5 euros in France.

They also have Brake and Clutch cleaner. How do you clean a clutch? I didn't even know mine might be dirty.

Better value than Halfords :thinking:

Don't tell me anything in Halfords is normally good value? :oops:

It always amuses me this kind of thing - I'm on the continent right now and precisely because of this kind of "BS" I don't actually bother going to France at the weekend :thumbsup:

The reason this amuses me is that I feel you put yourself in far more danger placing the warning triangle than you would putting on your hazards and getting out of the car and stepping over the barrier. Of course they could always buy Japanese cars in the first place and not break down....:p

Just like congestion charges/parking robbery - I won't go into a city to shop :-D

Let the place die a natural death by all means :whistling:

OK I'm off my soapbox :roll:

Great price though!

OK went to Lidl to check them out. Have you seen the size of these things?! They're huge! The Tesco ones are 1/3 the size for £7.99 (I got mine half price from Tesco)

Only for Spanish registered cars. Or if you are driving a motorhome or towing.
