Funny, I've always found their returns/complaints policy "no questions asked, other 'receipt?'" to be commendable.

Oh yeh, they gave me a refund with no quibble.....that was not my concern, their reaction to such a serious "fault" in their QA was.

Oh yeah, see what you mean. Sorry, bit slow on the uptake there; blame the hour of the day & a mind elsewhere.

Not sure if these have been posted before but this evening I picked up a cracking set of jump leads for £12.99 from Lidl.

25mm^2 cable, copper croc clips and a nice extra feature... LEDs on each clip to make night time jump-starting a bit easier.

I’ve had a set of good ones I bought 12 years ago and they’ve never been used! It’s one of those things you don’t want to be without, but never end up having it in the car when you need it! :rofl2:

That's good to know :) What with all of the electronics on the X7 I'd hate to be stranded and unable to start it if something flattened the battery.

I was considering one of those lithium jump starting packs, they seem to be very powerful. But the damn thing would probably be flat should I come to use it so a [much cheaper] set of leads would be more useful.

Next Thursday (08/11) Lidl are doing some car items (and I can say that the ice scraper is very good);

Our Lidls and Aldis already have them, been there a couple of weeks.
Shame I bought one from Screwfix.

Lidl's glass cleaner "with vinegar" is excellent stuff, couldn't believe the difference it made to the condensation problem these cold, damp, November evenings! Cheaper than £1 shop too.

At our Lidl this week the only car thing I could see was a tool for cleaning the inside of the windscreen, the middle aisle was full of Christmas tat.

There's a few tools in Lidl from today, mainly DIY stuff.

Perhaps I should've mentioned, in case anyone's swayed by my recommendation, that glass cleaner is "household" rather than "automotive".

Apparently Sainsbury's had their mincepies in so early, they have to be eaten before Christmas!
