just tried to get a replacement battery from halfords unfortunately they dont do one any other ideas?
I got one from these earlier in the year http://www.batmanuk.com/ picked it up from one of their shops locally. Think the one you need is a type 063. Was only ï¿½25 went in to get a bosch silver plus but he showed me a magazine article which tested loads and this was better than the bosch- half the cost as well.
I recently used CPC Battery Services Ltd, Twickenhan, West London 020 8898 6972 for a replacement battery for my exige + an Automate battery conditioner. Very knowledgable and excellent sevice/prices for quality products.
thanx guys i’ll look into them
Try a search for ‘Varta’. I seem to recall there was a good value replacement from them discussed here before.
Chris Foulds up here (Yorks) recommended and supplied a Lucas for about 40 quid?
By the time you have rung round and cocked about might as well get a good one in the first place!
PS I have bought 3 Lucas btteries for 3 lotus cars and they have all been bang on. The one in the Elan has been on ages and it cranks like a gud n even after being stood for ages
I managed to get a Bosch Silver battery from a company called CES, from memory it was about ï¿½35. It is the type 063 as required and has a cranking spec of 390Amps, the others I looked at only had 330Amps although I didn’t look at many. http://www3.enabledsites.co.uk/ces/default.asp
