And let me just repeat that. Wow!
OK, let me just preface my review by saying I’m one of those who always looks a gift horse in the mouth, and invariably finds something to complain about.
I’d read the reviews (here and elsewhere) for these jump leads, and yet I was still blown away by the quality of these leads (and I’ve owned and used a few sets in my life). The clamps are satisfyingly large, yet thinner nosed than most, and therefore easier to get on to the battery terminals. Both clamp jaws are metal and conducting, so twice the chance of making good contact (I’ve seen leads with two metal jaws, only one of which is ‘live’, and also leads with just one metal jaw). The clamps springs are reassuringly stiff, again conducive to making (and retaining) good contact. The cable outer diameter is nicely thick, yet made of a fairly flexible low-memory material. The leads still come in a nice case, and if I absolutely had to level any criticism at this product, it would be that the case material is a little too thin and flexible...but really, I’d be nit-picking.
Worth every penny.
I recommend this product!
I like:exactly what you want at a very reasonable price
I don't like as much:case could be sturdier?

If you want sharp brakes, replace your fluid regularly with this DOT 5.1 brake fluid. 'Regularly' means every two years for normal driving, and perhaps after every track-day for some of you.
Do NOT use Silicone brake fluid if you want the best braking performance. Silicone brake fluid does have advantages (doesn’t damage paintwork, doesn’t absorb moisture lowering it’s boiling point, lubricates seals) and this is why many classic car owners use it. However, not only isn’t it compatible with any other type of fluid, or suitable for ABS system, but it absorbs air, and because of this it is often impossible to get a firm brake pedal with silicone brake fluid. Don’t take my word for it though, do your research. What do the performance car makers say? What do the race teams say?
I recommend this product!

Can you tell me what are the dilutions for the classic screenwash please? The label is missing from my 5l bottle!

Depends when you bought it! Halfords have very quietly changed the strength of this over the years (it's got far weaker).
