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.
