Vx Battery Purchase Advice
« on: 22 July 2017, 11:27:28 »



This week I ordered a new battery for my miggie.  The Vx parts manager who I have known for years looks up on the Vx system and the battery for my car is listed as part no. 093197903, at 129.49 with TC.

Yesterday I went to collect the new battery.  It was about 1.5 times longer than my current battery and the Vx guys quickly agreed the obvious; it was the wrong battery despite the Vx listing as it would never fit.

Fortunately they had in stock the exact replacement for my current battery, part no. 095523432.  Received an apology and a 49.36 refund.

So, watch this one when you go to buy a battery from your Vx parts for your Omega 3.2 ;)

My parts man knows the TC book is 'dangle berries'.  So he tells me up front what he thinks it should be, what the book says, and we sort it out between us.

I think I paid around 45+VAT for the last one (maybe last year?). That was for the correct 74Ahr one, not the 60Ahr one the book claims.


Must ask him if he can get one for the Jag, as Halfords Trade is still over 150, and retail at 200 :o

I got this for mine last year but was only 79 on one of their discount days. http://www.autosessive.com/products/56205/yuasa-ybx5000-range-car-battery
