    I have a Halfords trade card which I aquired from a different Vauxhall members club and it save me loads of money if you can get one, for example the wipers worked out at more than half price and bulbs marked up at £3.49 came to 49pence at the till, so if you can..... get one! well worth the membership fee

    Halford have an ad in their stored saying 'they will not be beaten on price'

    They sell Redex diesel injector cleaner for either £4.99 or £5.99 - Kwikfit (yes you read right!!) have this for £3.50!!!

    Only one of the rear fog lights are meant to work on the Vectra C. Although there is a bulb in the other one it is not connected. I believe there is a "how to" thread to get it to work
    Lois Griffin: Peter! You're bribing your daughter with a car?
    Peter Griffin: Ah, c'mon, Lois, isn't 'bribe' just another word for 'love'?

    Most if not all of the above are cheaper at Vauxhall Main Dealers than Halfords.

    We have both almost next to each other and I often compare the price of bits.

    ah but its upto you to prove you can beat the price and in all honestly no one is goingto stand and argue about 1 / 2 £ when they can just go to the other retailer.

    p.s asda £2 for redex

    To be fair you could have gone to wilkinsons and got them even cheaper, or the local market and visited a auto stand. It all comes down to how lazy the shopper is and how convenient the store is.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    I got mine by being a full member of VxON (offer now closed to newer members, as other forums complained to Halfords... ). Got a litre of DOT5.1 brake fluid for a fiver instead of £12.50
