    Furry dice, Leopard skin seat covers, a fluorescent tube torch to be stuck under your car for that neon effect, and spend the rest on magic tree air fresheners - to be hung from everywhere possible around your cabin.

    Or you could just save the vouchers until you really need something.

    You liking the fluorescent tube and magic tree combo though!!

    If I were you I'd just take a trip down to your local halfords. A wander round always throws up many "hmmmmmm I could really do with one of those" moments!

    My local halford always has a bargain bucket full of loads of cheap goodies. Granted 99% of it is rubbish, but sometimes lurking at the bottom there are some real little gems!!

    Must be a stick-on one though.
    Preferably with adhesive that lasts about a week and then allows the vent to hang off slightly.

    Don't overlook the White Viper Stripes - a must have for bonnet and roof...

    The best part is you'd still have a tenner left over to really impress said checkout girl as now you'd be able to go super size!
