    To be honest if I can go to Partco/Unipart its where the garages go and mechanics you see them there oily overalls - You can get most of the stuff a lot cheaper. Example I ask for brake pads in Halfords they tell me they will bw there tommorow, I say can't waite Halfords guy says we order bits we havent got from Partco/Unipart down the road, so trade secret go and have a look there if you need them now !
    I find Halfords a lttle pricey we have to two Major motor factors in my town if for exmple I looked at Auto oil from Halfords at 10 were as my local garage factors supplier was selling it at 5 so thats speaks for itself.
    I do get stuff from Halfords yes because they do carry Manuals, accesories etc and are open all the time but I would look up your local Garage factors supplier to get a look at prices. You go to Joe Bloggs garage and they are using the local motor factors for parts.
