    Sadly, like so many things in life, there is no such thing as good AND cheap

    Might I suggest dropping Dave ( Dave Newell ) or Peter ( John Cross ) a pm with your needs ?
    Both sell what you are after, will not sell old toot, offer discounts to Fun members and will give you honest advice :thumb:

    If you have a Costco near you and know or are a member? I bought a top Bosch Silverline 100AH for my Boxer at a little over £100 a huge saving on what Halfords might dream up.
    No quibble on warranty with them either.

    Never buy batteries on line because if they dont last you will have agro in getting them replaced. We dont sell batteries on line due to courier problems as well.

    Buy from where you can easily return them like Cosco, Halfords or local factors/accessory shops best bet.

    I have a Halfords trade card, so batteries are a little cheaper, BUT, I would buy from a retailer who has branches all over the country who will take a faulty battery back and replace it within the two year warranty period with no quibble, whether or not it cost me a few quids more:thumb:, and a battery with a name on the side that does'nt sound like something a six year old has made up.
