    Would go for a Bosch Battery - find your nearest "German & Swedish" trade counter.

    Which car is this for? Each model if different: here's the LINK for the thread on my battery probs on my 2.5TDI quattro.

    Just call up GSF: they can advise... and there's normally stores everywhere.

    Try to get the right one for your car: e.g. I'm pretty sure that a 2.5TDI needs a higher spec than a 3.0 Petrol (tbh, with the way diesels are, the 1.9TDI probably needs more than an S4!).

    Here's my notes from my 2.5TDI:
    I seem to remember the cheapest one for my V6 TDI was about £75 + VAT, but the top spec Bosch one with about 25% more AH's was about £86+VAT... as far as I'm concerned, that's £20(+VAT) extra well spent!
