Lidl and Aldi Car accessories

Post by Hell Razor5543 » 04 Oct 2012, 20:24

Hello all,

You might want to check out Lidls' website. Next Thursday thay are doing car accessories, some of which you might find useful. I have got a set of the axle stands and they have not let me (or Gracie) down!

It is worth going back to their site regularly, as they have special offers (on various things, not just car bits) usually every Monday and Thursday. Aldis' update their site on a similar interval.

Car covers look good. I don't know if I can justify it though at £12.99
It is to cover up an ugly Corsa of a neighbours across the street.........my eyes are sore!!

I could do with another pair of stands at that price, but the postage would be a killer.

I have one of their trolley jacks, had it for years. I might buy another as it's getting a bit shoddy now. It's never failed, but one of the wheels came loose and got lost - more my fault than the jack, and I bent the handle using it as a breaker bar to lever the washer bottle mounting back straight when my Activa got bent. I could also do with a set of axle stands, as my halfords ones aren't brilliant, and have the pins missing, and one is slightly bent!

have to agree about the axle stands I have a set of them and find them very handy as a spare set when the heavy duty ones are being used

Me again.

Aldi have today also done some car bits.

The torque wrench is similar to the one I bought several years ago and still use. Mine goes from 28NM to 210NM.

If the moderators are OK with this, I will add the new Aldi and Lidl links to this post when they show they are doing car accessories.

No problem at all with the links Hell Razor.
Doesn't qualify as spam - unless you own Lidle, of course :P

I can't help the fact I go in Lidl or Aldi and even though the items look reasonable I would rather pay more and buy proper quality stuff. I know everyone likes a bargain but you get what you pay for in this world... [-X

I once bought a pack of the Aldi "Glass Smearing Wipes". Used them in a moment of hopefulness. They made an iffy situation so bad, I had to go home and hook into some methylated spirits and paper towel to sort things out on the windscreen.

some Aldi/Lidl stuff is brilliant and some is not worth the cost of the packaging. a simple rule is avoid any thing electrical.... but i've found the tools to be quite good, not snap-on/MAG quality but close to Holfords quality.... but WAY cheaper.
