Summary

Halfords was the clear winner, combining available product with great service and a good demonstration. The other stores provided options and, in the most part, could explain the product features but never made it clear why I should take a visor over an integrated kit.

With several of the network’s online stores stocking car-kits, it was a little disappointing no-one took the time to check their own website before letting me leave the store.
