    Default halfords advanced socket set which one?

    what one would you buy, these seem to be well cheap:

    updated version £149 150 piece.

    http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/s...egoryId_255215

    170 piece £259 down to £129

    http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/s...egoryId_255215

    have they ever been cheaper?

    The 150 piece one is often on sale at £99. Also, what's the difference between the two sets - if the extra 20 pieces are just allen keys and screwdriver bits then it's not worth the extra money.

    the 170 piece is cheaper then the 150, going to see what the difference is.

    The 170 piece one doesn't have the spanners that's in the top left corner of the 150 piece one.

    I'd go with the one that has the tools you use without odds and sods you won't. Can't remember which one mine is, but has the spanners top right when open. Lifetime guarantee as well - unless you take it out under coat, you do need the receipt for the guarantee
