Ideal new battery for a 159 just fitted
I've seen so many threats about the right battery for a 159 I thought I'd add my 2 penneth. Sorry
I ordered an Exide EA900 Premium 115 TE battery from Tayna on Monday at a delivered cost of £71.29 all in.
Impressively it turned up on Wednesday morning, perfectly packaged, complete with clear safety instructions about removing the transit plugs and a 4 year guarantee
It is the exact same size as the original ( 315x175x190 I Understand this is the same for the 2.4D ?) so no issues with fitting or having to pack it to make sure its secure, has a 90 Ah capacity and a CCA of 720 which is considerably better than the original battery.
All in all took 20 mins to fit from start to finish with the only inconvenience being having to reset the time and date.
I know the CCA spec is not quite up to the Varta F18, and the guarantee is 1 year less , but the capacity of Exide is better, its nearly £10 cheaper and doesn't need packing to secure it in place like the Varta
In short highly recommended as a product and supplier
