Ordered a week ago for 10p more and waited for it to arrive before posting, just in case it was too good to be true!

I can confirm it fits a 2012-onwards Fiat Panda 1.3 diesel 4x4 with stop/start, but you'll need to check if it suits your particular vehicle. Simply enter your VRM to check. The 027 is a popular type and will suit a wide range of vehicles.
These use AGM tech and are sealed and maintenance free. Car Battery Technologies
- A traditional car battery is known as a wet (or flooded) battery. In its basic form, this is a strong plastic (usually ABS) container which contains lead plates submerged in a dilute liquid electerolyte solution. These must be kept upright to avoid spillage. Batteries have been produced this way for many, many years.AGM Batteries
- Absorbent Glass Mat (AGM) batteries were developed in the 1980s and feature a fibreglass matting which surrounds the lead plates with the electrolyte absorbed within it. The major benefits are that the battery becomes spill proof (and so can be theoretically mounted in any position), has far better vibration resistance and is better able to deep cycle (survive multiple deep discharging and recharging). They also (for various technical reasons) are more reliable than their wet counterparts. The downside is that AGM batteries are more expensive to produce. AGM batteries are factory fitted to the majority of premium Start Stop vehicles.EFB Batteries
- Enhanced Flooded (EFB) Batteries are best described as a hybrid between wet and AGM batteries. They are designed to provide many of the benefits of an AGM battery such as increased reliability and deep cycle capabilities without the high cost. EFB batteries are fitted as standard to many entry level Start Stop vehicles.
