I nipped to Halfrauds, they did a free drop test on my old one, although the test was inconclusive I told them to stick a new one in (their model #, HCB096 CLICKY), not cheap at just under a £100, but a 4 yr warranty and no problems since.
My other car is a 480 hp Volvo.

If you want a Premium battery the Bosch S5013 is the biggest that fits. I paid £94.50 mail order from Autospares back in March.
