    Battery Size

    Once I've finished my instal I will have about 1000 watts drawing a possible 100+ amps from my standard battery. My car is an A4 B5 1.8T and the battery does look, is, fairly small.

    Is there any reason why I couldn't install a larger battery, from a 2.8 30v for example? Would it affect the alternator? or cause some other issues?

    theres no reason you cannot fit a larger battery
    if you are going for a standard type as oposed to gell cell look at the varta silver seals they provide a good battery at reasonable cost
    the battery will place a slightly higher load upon your alternator
    as bigger battery = more current to charge and maintian voltage
    providing the alternator is upto scratch then there should not be a problem at all
