As the title says.

Car is booked in for its MOT on Tuesday, and my battery is fooked, so if anyone can lend me one monday/tuesday next week until I buy one or if anyone wants to sell one, please let me know, cheers.

Ahh didn't know that Mark, cheers.

The one in it at the moment is a B18 (43Ah) which is a bit too small,

Ideally, I'm after a B13:
Length - 242mm
Width - 175mm
Height - 190mm

Terminal type needs to be type 1

Jeeze what did you get lol... I was quoted £42.50 all in for a brand new diesel battery (dearer then petrol batteries) from Europarts in Moreton. I think the dearest place was quoting £68 lol.

Halfords are absolute rip-off merchants. In the end I got myself a second hand, but practically new one (still in packaging etc) from the scrappy for £15 lol.

Btw, you can get away without the battery being secure on the MOT, ive had an advisory for it twice lol.

I was quoted £50 for one inc VAT from J&M Speed but they shut at 1pm on Sat and weren't open today frown

The one I bought is a calcuim battery and has a 4 year guarantee, otherwise it was about £55 for a standard one.

Tried to get the 10% using the offer they had this bank holiday, but there was no reserve and collect available for the Bidston Moss store.
