Just been to Dorchester halfords and they were very helpful and knowledgeable. Not only did they know which adaptor I needed for my freelander (it was marked as BMW), they even gave me a little rubber thing for the back of the stereo that they don't sell, but carry in their personal installation kit. Didn't even charge me for it and I didn't buy my stereo from their either. Very refreshing. Feel bad for slagging them off this morning now!

Some of the guys in my local place are really good, which makes it all the more frustrating when you get stuck with one of the numpties.

The Halfords on Cribs Causeway Bristol are really good, helpful etc. The rest around the Bristol area are a complete waste of time!

All Halfraud's need to do now is cut their prices by 50% and then they should be competitive!?

I still detest them though.

I'm happy to pay a bit extra for the convenience. I could have sorted everything I needed much more cheaply online, but I decided to tackle the job yesterday morning and was able to drive to the store and get everything I needed, plus some advice. It's worth paying a bit extra for that, I feel.

I have never got on with halfords :( they never have what I need, they never offer any help, and my local treat me like a little girl who doesn't know what shed talking about.

Nice to hear some one is having better luck, or indeed that there are better halfords employees out there

Same here, erm except for the little girl bit obviously.
