Battery replacement
« on: 20 January 2019, 19:28:11 »

The six year old vauxhall battery in the beast (3.2 saloon) is telling me it's had enough ...  if I start the car every day it just about copes ... if I leave it 72 hours then a boost pack is needed :( ... even when "flat" - 12.1 volts offload - it thinks it is fully recharged - 12.7 volts offload - in less than 3 hours on a 4 amp charger ... which is mathematically impossible.

It was 76.00 (+ VAT) ... but reduced to 49.99 (VAT) on trade club ....  so not done too badly ..  :)

So, where is the best place, at the moment, to purchase a battery for a 2001 3.2 saloon, and why, oh why, does every battery manufacturer now use a different product code !! you can't even search google easily  as there appears to be no single reference number .. :(

Using expired code then, 90 is full price. 50 with a code.

People don't learn ECP sell tat.

That's OK if you need some quick, or its cheap, but most ECP shite is overpriced, even with the usual DFS type off codes


Yeah, yeah, I bought one of their very high quality exhausts yesterday, which obviously is Timax junk (sorry, Klaurius, due to Timax's bad name, they rebranded) at a premium price (using a code). But I wanted it yesterday.


I'm actually sorely tempted to weld the hanger back on the 17yr old one that came off, and bin the ECP supplied one...

If you want/need to buy anything from ECP then first check their ebay shop where it will always be cheaper than direct from the ECP website, despite the discount codes. You can do a pick up at store. That said ECP are rarely the cheapest source.

Used them in the past, also used Tayna a couple of times recently, no problems either time - just picked whichever one was cheapest for the battery I needed there and then (last time, the giant battery in the BMW .. 170!)

Quite cheap then .....  ;)

 ;D Aye - but for an AGM battery (which I hope that was for!) I can see it .. this is just an old fashioned lead acid; albeit a 110Ah one that just about gave me (another) hernia  ;D
