GTV Battery spec and shape needed (V6 please!)
evening chappies - been battling a slowly dying battery for the last couple of months, and going in to get it swapped under warranty on wed, but have made a couple of discoveries -
firstly, the battery i've got is an "Exide for Alfa Romeo 12v, 70ah, 450A battery", and doesn't fit my battery tray.
is this how they all are? (Too short width wise?)
Secondly, I've fitted a battery from a new shape 5 series that was rejected on the grounds of low voltage (i.e needed a charge) and it's a cracker - really perky starting, but it's rated at 12v, 80AH, and something like 750AH!
Will this cause a problem, or is it more suited to the car? Seems to fit the tray better than OEM too!
Cheers Chaps, looking forward to your replies.
