    I have the s4 if you can find the size of that and fits fine with space either side

    I don't think you will have a problem to be honest

    I just got the S5 for my 2003 1.9tdi and it was slightly shorter than the Halford's battery that was in already

    My friend gave me a Bosch S4 100ah - I couldnt see how it would fit in my 2.5TDi due to the air-conditioning pipes being in the way.
    There is an 85ah unbranded battery in there at the minute and looks like the maximum width that will fit.

    The Bosh batteries are the dogs danglies though - the S4 battery my friend gave me was made in 2006 - been sat on the garage floor for 2 months, thought I would give it a trickle charge - it jumped from 12.4v to 14.4v in about 4 seconds - the charger turned off!
