    Ok so I'm picking up the S3 today and the battery is on its way out... I've seen a few threads regarding light weight batteries but they don't seem to have a definitive answer!

    Shall I go for it or is it too much of a ball ache to bother with? Would be nice to lose some weight from the nose of the car but don't want to have the hassle of it not starting on a cold morning etc. Are there light batteries out there which perform as well as their weighty cousins and don't cost the earth?

    Sorry if this has been covered a million times already and I'm just too idiotic to find it! Cheers

    Personally I don't rate halfords batteries. I had 3 replacements in a 4 year warranty period on the top calcium battery.

    They replaced it every time without quibble, but I'd rather have the reliability.

    Buy Bosch.

    Yep, I've used Bosch for years, and don't buy it from halfords unless you have a trade card. ECP or GSF will be miles cheaper.
