    New car battery.

    Folks,

    I need a new battery for the scooby, after a long holiday and mainly weekend use mine has just about given up.
    Are halfords the best place to go or anyone point me in the direction of a decent battery to buy?
    All advice welcome!
    Thanks,

    Eli.

    Anything Bosch or Exide is good. Can get from Euro Car Parts delivered. Very good prices, they are dominating the local car part shops at the moment.

    Varta or Bosch be best quality I'd say
    Especially for cars with Clifford's and less regular use probably worth the extra money
    Most motor factors stock at a guess

    The two things that l was very proud of my scoob is that through out my ownership l never had to change light bulb or battery as l had to do that in every previous car before. Now l had to change both within the first few months.

    Thanks for the offer Tomo,
    I replaced it on Saturday as couldnt wait any longer, it was totally dead and the alarm was going off as a result, got in local motor factors.
