Useful to give better view behind when reversing, reduced from £14.99 to just £2

Hi there,

It's a brilliant bit of kit and I used one for many years in a small estate car.

When I tried the one from the car in the van I found that the increased distance from the mirror made it next to useless, but from the dimensions of the one in the link (18cm x 23cm) this is quite a bit bigger so I will drop in and get one. up!

Thanks for the "heads up". allthumbz

Best regards,

Worth checking on-line if your local branch has stock. My nearest hasn't but the next two have.

Hi there,

Went out for a ride on the bike and dropped in to local Halfords to discover "Not in Stock".

Now reserved on line with promise "You can collect after one hour." so now expecting email that says "It will be available next Wednesday." or something similar!

They had the small one in the shop that I already know won't work because it's too small.  Oh, and priced at £9.99!! tap_fingerstap_fingers

I've got one in the van which I paid about £11 for at Towsure. I hadn't seen them anywhere else at the time. It's now discoloured and spotty. If you can't get one in Halfords they're selling them on eBay.

Nora,
They have stock in Greyhound Park and in Chester City centre branches but none in Wrexham.

Thanks Paul, I ordered one from eBay the other day. It's coming from Hong Kong though so I may have it by Christmas!
