    Can anyone confirm the correct size battery an A3 can hold? I have just seen 2 different Varta batteries and apparently both fit the A3 but they are different in length and power output:

    Varta Silver Dynamic 585 200 080 3162 : 85Ah|800A - 317L x 175W x 175H (mm)
    VARTA SILVER dynamic 577 400 078 3162 : 77Ah|780A - 278L x 175W x 190H (mm)

    Which is the right one for Our A3?
    A3 Sportback 2.0TDI
    Dark Headlining, Bose, Alcantara Leather, Interior Lights Pack

    MODS:
    S3 facelift,
    RS3 Grill, 19" RS6, TTRS FBMFSW, A5 S-Line Heated Seats, Bi-Xenons, Auto Lights & Wipers, Eibach Sportlines, Auto Folding & Dimming Dumbo Mirrors, S3 brakes, US Centre Console, Cruise, Pioneer HU, Reverse Camera, OEM Parking Sensors, LED Tail Lights, S3 Pedals, Tints, Carbon Trims.

    Just been and measured my (original) battery. 2006 Sportback

    280 x 170 x 180 H Varta - Audi part no. 1J0 915 105 AF

    You need the second one you mentioned as the first will not physically fit as it's too long for the box !

    I bought this when I had battery issues:

    Bosch Audi S4 Battery 100 4 Year Guarantee | Euro Car Parts UK’s No.1 Car Parts Retailer

    It's listed as £86 on their website and £75 in store, but I paid £58 trade iirc. When I was reading up on it I found it to be pretty much the equivalent of the Varta NHN recommended

    Thanks for your reply, no the juddering doesn't stop with the clutch pressed, how would I get the ecu update from? Does anyone know any good garages near birmingham I could take it to that won't rip me off to get it sorted?
    Thanks
