    What's your budget and what do you intend doing? The Halfords Pro kits are good kit and a few of us, me included, have used these for a while with no problems. I've got the 150 piece kit but I see that the 120 piece kit is on offer at the moment. A few less bits but at the offer price it's half the price of the 150 piece. You could possibly buy the 'missing' bits for less than the price difference - all depends on the exact difference between them, you'd need to compare the two.

    The 150 piece does come up on offer now and again as well. When I got mine it was £100 but the full selling price was 'only' £150 - it took a bit of a price hike after that as you can see.

    I have the Draper 192 (I think) kit costy about £85 off ebay. Only ever broke one 14mm socket and I think thats cus the bolts on the wheels had welded and needed breaking.
    On the plus side they did send one out with no request for proof of purchase or evidence. recieved 2 days later

    Halfords was on my list for to-day but didn't make it so maybe tomorrow. I have a resonable socket set so am thinking an aditional Torx set for this car. ..
