    Mines standard too and struggles for the first turnover. Im about to get a 80amp one, but you really want to be looking at the CCA rating for cold cranking.

    well what a job ive had trying to find out what size battery, Audi wouldnt even answer phone ,ended up with a company in Nottingham who sell on Ebay, they recommended a Bosch S4008 ,74Ah and cca 680, £70.00 all in, just need to get it here and fit, then ill have to sort out the A3 as that also has a dead battery, what next......empty wallet. Thanks to the two who pointed me in right direction.:yes:
