    What could Ł30 get you?

    My GF bro has just brought an s3.

    We need to buy him a present for his bday and we got a budget of Ł30

    Anything worth buying him at this low low price?

    Was a joke, some people have moaned about the S3's cost to run...

    I've never used one either,

    Failed joke aside, I'd consider a new tax disc holder, can't remember the cost but is definately under Ł30, it's a nice touch IMO...

    Its not that much hastle is it mate? I think it adds a nice touch to the car, almost looks standard, and as its a present at least you would see it every time you see the car.

    I know its not much hassle, im presuming ( even though presumings bad)! they dont know much about cars and might think what on earths a lcr splitter, cleaning stuffs always easy to get as birthday presents. I agree it does look good.

    as a present you could direct him to this site. that is free, but will ultimately cost him a lot of his savings

    i say get a nice keyring, tax disc holder and a numberplate surround, should get all that for Ł30
