    Anyone know of any good car battery deals....or where to buy a reasonably priced one.....

    Car battery on it`s way out - had a quick look online, is it worth paying more for a calcium lead etc? Car is a 07 Vauxhall Astra, so only basic and hoping to replace in next year or 2 so don`t need a 5 year guarantee etc. Just need it to start reliably in the mornings!
    Thanks peeps

    try euro car parts use code weekend30 for 30℅ off

    tayna usually cheaper than euro.

    Its worth paying more for a battery with a higher CA & CCA for cold mornings (batteries have this info on the specs)

    Just match the one thats already fitted im sure the boffins at vauxhall made the right choice when they designed/ assembled the car

    what model/size do you need

    I use batterymegastore.co.uk fortunately they are near mother in laws... 15 miles away... so i have called in and picked one up but the last time I needed a battery I got them to deliver. Good prices and I think they supply much of the country with battery's as it's a big warehouse filled to the ceiling.

    This is a 73 ampere battery which happily runs a Honda Accord Executive.

    Have a look at Exide Premium range and Varta, they are both good.
    "Tayna" as mentioned previously seems cheaper the ECP even after the 30% discount

    Both these have better spec, (same spec a higher rated Bosch S5 - not s4)

    ​I have one of their euro line (I think its called) in my iveco daily 2.8 diesel, it was about £50 over 2 years ago. I only bought it as it was the cheapest I could find and wasn't sure if I was keeping the van.
    still gong strong.

    ​The Bosch S4 is a good choice, I have the same on my car.

    what size battery are u after ebay I think is the cheapest I've h had 3 battery of there after a long search and they came out cheapest one came from that tayna company one a Bosch was about 20 pounds cheaper than eurocarparts but funnily enough it came from them well carparts4less warehouse in london think majority of companies sell the stuff cheaper on ebay than there own websites as they need get in terms market some how so those who just check there sites lucky for the company otherwise they don't want lose to much to ebay so just sell on there aswell

    the cheapest 075 sized battery on ebay is around 35 quid assuming that's the size u need

    Thanks so much for all your replies Yes it is a 075 I need.

    I`v learn`t lots today - I normally just pop into kwik fit etc & get them to pop on a new one, without comparing prices, spec etc.

    I`v whittled it down to these 2, both similar spec & with the slightly higher CCA at 600 -

    The Bosch S5004. Cheapest I can find it is at Just car batteries for £61.99 & has free delivery. Same battery is £68, plus £8 delivery at Tanya. Ebay £76 & Euro Car parts want £134 for the S5!!!

    Or possibly the Exide Premium EA612 which has same spec - slightly cheaper on ebay than Tanya at £50 delivered.

    Would you bother paying an extra £12 for the Bosch?!
