I've usually found that if I spot the item I'm interested in Halfords, if I then google the item I can generally find it significantly cheaper elsewhere. For cheap budget stuff they're probably reasonable but for better quality kit they always seem expensive.
Picked up a JVC headunit and JBL speakers plus facia and harness adapters for just over a ton. Looked around the web retrospectively - why do we do that??? - and yes could have saved a couple of quid on the bits but adding postage probably not. Plus walked out with everything in one bag and if, god forbid thereâ€™s something amiss then itâ€™s only a few minutes back to the store.
Just need to fit it all at the weekend and a happy daughter, for a while anyway.
