    What's happened to Halfords???

    Last weekend I went to Halfords Watford branch to see if they could mix up some colour match for my car..... I waited at the parts desk patiently for approx 15-20mins with no joy or service........ So i left in rather a bad mood

    Today I went to the Hemel Hempstead branch and exactly the same thing...... only this time I did get served only for the guy serving me saying he couldn't match my car colour because it would take too long to find the correct match.....????

    I argued with him saying I'd been stood waiting for service and they do advertise that they can match any colour...... He still didn't want to pull his finger out to try and help so again I left in a f***ing foul mood!!!

    I remember the service at Halfords being a lot better than what i've experienced lately.

    Has anyone else had similar experience?

    Rant over....

    If its got pistons or tits, its gonna be expensive!!

    Sorry you have felt this way mate.

    Next time if you ever decide to go in again, tell them to look at your drivers side door vin plate and look under Opel and not vauxhall for Titan gold on their system.

    Your code should be 2 numbers then followed by an L. For example 10L is glacier white. Or Z followed by 3 numbers

    Only know this cos I mix them myself

    I had a similar waiting experience when i bought my socket set. I was waiting and two people both said they would be with me and then they both went off with customers that were behind me. Oh well.

    I bought door speakers from Halfrauds after the lad looked up on his computer to see what size i needed. Went to get them fitted and they were the wrong size! Was majorly pished off! Went back and another lad looked again and got me the right size, and i got some discount.

    THEN i got some brake pads from there, after asking the lad on sales desk which ones i needed. Took to get fitted, guess what? wrong ones!! So i walked back(luckily only 15mins walk) and got the ones that I needed(i thought), guess what, it was the right box but wrong contents!! So i went back again and got refund and then went to a parts place and got them. Guess what, got right ones first time.

    I try and shop there as little as possible now, they just don't seem to have a clue at any of the stores i go to.
    For free hugs PM me.
