New Battery
« on: March 28, 2013, 01:05:30 pm »
Have just bought one of these, http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/EXIDE-017-100AH-BMW-MERCEDES-4-YEAR-G-TEE-CAR-BATTERY-/261114707861?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item3ccba63f95

It's the biggest battery that will fit into the carrier.
Note the specs.
Next day delivery and the best price I could find for that spec.

....though with that in the key, I could probably unlock it from work, when my wife locks her keys in the car!

...might stretch my pockets a bit though!

Typical, just taken delivery of this one, not upto the same spec but she starts now and the flashing alarm door light thing has stopped. Has a 5 year warranty and a little cheaper.
