Buyer Review: “I wanted a phone holder that I didn’t have to stick to the window as I find them a bit unsightly not to mention they fall off or leave marks on the glass.
This clips on the airvent and it even holds my phone in its flip case which is a bit bulky, would be better without the case but it works for me. And it’s not offensive to look at when you leave it without the phone. Overall quite pleased.” H. Barker

Car Windscreen Frost Cover
This cover provides maximum protection against the elements and keeps your windshield free from frost, snow, ice and dirt.
Buyer Review: “I actually researched these screen shades quite a lot. Internal fit shades need to be firm to stay in place, but they just don’t fit your particular car – so they leave gaps. This is a soft fabric that drapes over the screen (on the outside) and covers everything. Once in place, it’s a nice fit. I have a large Volvo V60 estate. The 145cm shade fits it fine and would even be ok for a larger car. From a sun/heat perspective (which is what I bought it for), I am really pleased. It works very well. It is so easy to put on too. I may use it for ice protection – but as it is held in place by trapping in the doors on either side, I’m sure it will e fine with ice and snow – I’m not sure this would cope well in very windy conditions. If it was very windy, I wonder if it might rip where it is trapped in the door. Maybe another buyer can comment on that. So – it works well, and frankly, it looks classy. I’m very pleased with it and I recommend it.” PeteB
Car Cleaning Putty
This cleaner putty is an innovative gel that quickly picks up dust particles and pet hair like a magnet to keep your car interior looking spotless.
Buyer Review: “Cleaning interior of family car always left dust and crumbs etc in plastic crevices, in the folds of leather seats, in speaker and air vents etc. this product works well at lifting these elements and leaves clean dust free surface behind. The proof was in the amount held in the gel in no time. We have a 160000 mile Volvo and it’s been a family vehicle for the last 11 years. Interior has not looked this clean for the last 150000 and I have gone and bought 2 more gel pots on the strength of how well the first has worked. Well worth it and quietly satisfying to use!!” charlierga

There’s a little medical kit, jump leads, tow robe all sorts that will make an emergency just that little bit easier.

It was pretty easy to set up and link with my iPod and phone although it only connects to one source at a time. You have to manually change the Bluetooth connection. The sound quality is pretty good for the price paid. No Bluetooth link device is perfect and I have tried quite a few. This is one of the best I’ve heard. I’m pleased with the purchase and would recommend.” Ladiy

Buyer Review: ”
Used to replace a broken fuse and I figured it is good to have a few as a back up anyway, so chose the 120 Standard Option.
They work perfectly fine.
My only slight regret is that I didn’t take a proper look at the fuse box (hanging upside down from the driver seat isn’t a fun position) and the Micro + Mini + Standard option would have been a better fit for what I may or may not need in the future. That is on me, though, and you live and learn!” Amazon Customer

Buyer Review: “Was delivered on time & used it to top up my 4 Tyres which all needed 5 or 6 more PSI in them
It did them quickly, a minute or less each. Only used it once so only time will tell how reliable it is so we should only be asked to review 9 months or so after purchase. This is a quick update. So glad I purchased this inflator. Had to use it yesterday after RED pressure indicator on my merc warning very low pressure. Was able to inflate to get me home & seemed ok. This morning tyre absolutely flat in my garage. No room to remove tyre in the garage so with fingers X used the AstroAl on the same battery I charged weeks ago & within minutes inflated to 36psi & it still had 2 lights on the battery! Was able to drive to a garage no problem to repair tyre. What a great purchase much better than the other make of inflator I returned, excellent.” al
