    I think my batter is on it way out because if i don't drive the car for a day then its completely drained when i try and start the car (worse now the cold weather is setting in).


    What I'm confused about is that everywhere says that i need a 027 battery but i just went out and checked mine and I've got a 075 one in there (Unipart GBA3075).


    I've read a few posts from people saying they've fitted a new battery and now their battery cover wont fit, I don't want this to happen to me.....lol


    So does anyone know what batteries will fit and still allow me to keep the battery cover?



    Thanks ;-)

    Don't bother with halfords calcium.

    I had 3 replacements within the 4 year warranty on my previous 8L S3.

    Buy a Bosch.
