More 'oily' and less astringent.

Lidl's have some absurdly cheap +100% headlight bulbs - but only in H7, it seems.

Got another one of those toy compressor tyre pumps (see my earlier post) last w/e. They've got some nice CREE work lights for £4.99 (+ batteries) - or rechargeable ones for twice the price. Thinking about one of their latest £15 socket sets, if only because they include E-sockets (i.e. female torx) & I'll need one when I finally pull the trans out of the parts Jeep (& maybe another to separate the transfer box) & I suspect a set of those'd probably be about the same price.

Maybe, BUT that's not much help if your local branch also only has H7's.

Lidl here (Spain) have screened off all their non-food (clothes, tools, misc) section, presumably to prevent browsing and pick-up-and-examine shoppers. The store is otherwise well-stocked, few shoppers, and gloves and alcohol handwash on the way in.

It could well be worth checking the prices at Aldi/Lidl. I was in Aldi this morning (one of the Reading branches), and they were selling stove fans (that work off thermo-electric) at £2.99 (down from £4.99). These, normally, are around £25! Mum asked me to get four of them, and she is putting the word out around the boating community (as they often have fuel stoves (as opposed to electric) with hot tops you can put the kettle and pans on; these fans work really well on them).

Oh, next Sunday (24/05) Lidl have a few cycling items for sale;

I was in Asda this week, and they are doing all of their own brand 5L oil at £14. I have used it for years now, with no problems I am aware of.

I have just bought some security stickers for my fleet, well the vulnerable ones, and I am impressed with them so have a look if you would like to improve your cars vulnerability to thieves for very little outlay:

Neither Lidl nor Aldi for this but an interesting item I have just seen.
From your favourite online retailer.
