    Talking Just been out for.....

    ..2 sockets from Halfrauds E18 & E20 and came back with this




    All ready for a Bilstein fitting session over Easter.Just ordered a set of B4s from EuroCarParts for £140 inc with a discount after mentioning Vectra-C.com.After having 888 Eibachs fitted on standard SRi shocks it was better but still never completely happy with handling so hope these make a difference

    P.S The wife seems to think i have issues

    Exactly the same socket set as mine Penfold - great bit of kit and a bahaaaaragin for me as I got it for £100 when there was a special offer, instead of the £150 asking price - and I think it's gone up since then?

    The one bit that I found was missing, that you'll want to buy separately, is the 7mm hex socket which you'll want if you're changing discs/pads. The sockets in the kit have 6mm and 8mm but no 7mm.

    I also added the 3/8" 150mm locking extension bar for using with the spark plug socket. The non-locking one in the kit would leave your spark plug socket behind when you tried to pull the plug out! lol

    Oh no

    I feel my tool addiction calling again, going to do an oil change at the end of the week so was going to Halfords to buy some disposable gloves, but I think at that price I'll have to invest in the socket set too

    Wowza!!! One that's it's gone up £50 (in terms of what the full price was when I got mine) and secondly that they're still doing it at that special offer price that I got mine at a while back. Again, an absolute bargain!!! Anyone looking for a decent socket set, with other stuff (ratchet spanners etc.), there you go. No brainer given that price!!
