    Short and sweet - multimeter confirmed dead cell(s) in car battery (10v reading...), so I need a replacement... Issue is, every website that I use the "insert registration and we'll find the right batteries!" feature brings up batteries with a length of 242mm, whereas the one currently fitted (OEM Exide EFB) is a 207mm unit. And the housing definitely won't fit an extra 35mm...

    Specs for current battery are:

    207x175x190mm
    55Ah
    450A
    Start/Stop (presuming EFB, but just says "stop & start")

    Go, But-Tech, go!!

    I bought our last battery there, a high quality Varta one for less money delivered, than the "cheap" battery from the local National Tyres branch (was a bit skint) , that struggled in cold weather after just 3 years.

    That seems to tick all the boxes, and it isn't the £240+ that the Bosch alternative seems to go for either, which is another huge plus.

    Less than £100 all in inc. delivery before 10am Tuesday. Hopefully this is all I need to fork out to get it up and running again!
