    bought a battery from Eurocarparts only to find out that it was too big even after putting in my reg plate. I guess they don't realise that the convertible is a smaller battery than other models and I was too naive to double check dimensions

    It's awkward to look through batteries on their site as it keeps asking for a plate or model of car. Using Google I found this one which I've seen suggested elsewhere while on Google

    It's the Bosch S5 Battery 110 with a 5 Year Guarantee costing £105 but there's a limited period 30% off parts code (available to all on Facebook) I can use today that takes it down to around £74

    It has the following spec:

    Amp Hours (Ah): 85Ah
    Cold Cracking Amp (CCA): 800CCA
    Length: 315mm
    Width: 175mm
    Height: 175mm

    will this battery be OK for my 3.0L diesel convertible or do you have any other suggestions?

    Thanks
