Cheaper than Halfords - and a great deal happier too!
I needed a new car battery, phoned round a few places but most would have to order in, Halfords on the other hand had what I wanted in stock. They had two types - normal (460 crank amps for those who know what I'm talking about) at £80 and £90 for the heavy duty battery (510 CA) and they were asking £4.99 to fit it - I worked that out to be nearly £60 per hour fitting! I found them a bit pushy and desperate for me to buy the more expensive battery.
Reluctantly I phoned my main dealer as a last resort before parting with £95, Subaru are bound to be more expensive I thought. They had the heavy duty in stock, supplied fitted and VAT £80, saving myself £15 which I intend to spend down the pub on Friday - who says Main Dealers are pricey, well Woodford Motors are not.
I must say that the staff at Woodford Motor Co were a lot more pleasant too (big bonus in my books), this is the first time I've used them and I was impressed with what I saw so I'll be back in August for a service... I'll let you know how I get on.
