    Thumbs Down f*****g Halfrauds

    just a rant, whats the point in halfrauds having a computer system to check stock if it doesn't tell the right things?
    Thought i would change the plugs and leads on my x16xel (wait for it) and went into halfrauds, found the plugs but not the leads, so i asked at the parts desk...

    yes sir what car?.... Astra mk 4, 1.6 16v its the x16xel engine code if that helps?.... Yes sir one in stock £34.... Great i'll have it.

    Get home and take the plastic cover off to see....... no HT leads cause it has a ignion pack!
    So much for being a motorfactors, i would hate to think what else they f**k up on. Glad i knew what spark plugs i wanted!

    I reserved a part online (for my bike but still at halfords) and went and they couldnt even find the reservation on the system then i had to go find it on the shelf myself so they knew what i wanted, the worst thing was i had to travel to the one that was a few miles away because that was the only one with that in stock so i think that was probably un true

    true, true. Didn't think to look as the plastic cover hid everything up. Hadn't ever had a car that didn't have leads so was shocked at first before realising.
    My point is he looked it up on the computer and that should have told him that i didn't need any, not that i did!!
    I normaly use my local motorfactor but they only keep cheap stuff, not bosch. i know for a fact they would have told me without looking that i didn't need them.

    Halfrauds are not as good as they used to be, everything is over priced there, I only go when I 100% need to these days
