    Battery types

    Hi all,
    I’ve tried a few different types of batteries in the past, mainly big batteries intended for heavy starting diesels or leisure batteries, the current battery on my nova is about done for and I need to get another so thought I would ask for recommendations on what others use.

    Thanks

    Hello Mate
    I have the Bosch 063, the heavy duty 52 Amp Hour one. It's a hit at £63.

    There is a Bosch standard model as well ~£50, @44 AH.

    063 is the VW Beetle size as you probably know, so this battery fits the recess in the front compartment.
