Anyone seen the advert? Stores staffed by monkeys?

It's true!

Just called in for beam benders for C5. As it happens I still have the
instructions for the ones I put on the Xantia last year, so had a look
at them first. C5 not mentioned. Picks up the pack at Halfords "fits
most cars" it says. So I grab an assistant :

"Are these suitable for a C5?"

"Can't say...."

" Well the instructions in the pack I bought last year don't mention

"You'll have to buy them & bring back if they don't fit"

"Can you not just open the pack & find out?"

"No, we can't do that...."

Why didn't YOU open the box?

Not a box - bubble pack!

But it has had a happy ending. I phoned Halford's HO Customer Service
today (yeah, right, I thought so too..) where I spoke to a well
informed youg lady who immediately gave me the phone number of the
manufacturer (which is not on last year's packaging) and a contact
name. Phone the number to be told that "Yes, indeed, there are now C5
fitting instructions" So, I'll buy some termorrer.
