Recommendations for a general-purpose Digital Multimeter?

For general automotive use this takes some beating:-


It incorporates a 'low amp' DC clamp meter which is very handy for fault finding parasitic current draws.  Also has audible continuity test and voltage measurement.  These are a steal at £30.

Thanks for all the advice, chaps.  Most helpful.

I've opted for the Draper as it has all the functions I'm familiar with, including a continuity buzzer.  Also, I quite fancy a temperature probe as I don't already have such a device (other than my fingertip*).

* Works surprisingly well for distinguishing < and > 60C, as my chemistry lecturer often pointed out.  But not so good on hot primaries.
