Hi, Can anybody help me to figure out the best value option to get my car battery replaced. I have a honda civic 1.4S 1999, petrol engine and I live in Guildford.

Thanks

Fitting yourself or not?

I am not sure but I can do it if it makes a considerable difference in total cost.

Well it's an easy job, but you will usually need at least a socket set.

Any fast fit garage (e.g. Kwikfit (etc.)) will do it very easily. Cheapest batteries will come from a local auto factor. Match the capacity of your battery (in amp hours, amphr, Ah) with the new one.

Thanks a lot for your replies, guys. I have got the following quotes from a couple of places:

halfords: BPS 60 + BPS 5 for fitting. brand is halfords
kwikfit: BPS 90 for excite.
manbat: BPS 58+ BPS 4 for fitting brand is NUMAX
a local store: BPS 44.3 UNIPART battery without fitting.

All of them come with three years guarantee.

Apparently, unipart seems to be the best buy here.

Any thoughts?

unipart is ok

Go with the cheapest. Don't get conned by Kwik fit.
If you're not confident fitting it, take it to a local garage or call around a few.
I changed mine recently. Halfords said £90, local garage supplied and fitted for £35.
Look up the good garage scheme for a local one.
