A full tool kit

Any car lover worth their salt will have a decent tool kit – after all, who wants to pay someone else to fix a car when it you can do it yourself? There’s a huge range of toolkits on sale and – as with all things – the price range and differences in quality are huge. You can get a full set of more or less everything from Halfords for around £100.

But the best stuff is branded and it’s expensive. For a home mechanic a mid-size Teng tool chest will contain more or less everything that’s needed for servicing and repair, but it’ll set you back about £500 and that’s before you buy jacks, axle stands and other assorted gizmos. Maybe garage bills aren’t so steep after all?
