Where to buy car battery?

Can anyone recommend an online store to buy a replacement car battery for my Clio? My local store want nearly £70 and that seems a bit crazy, especially for a 2nd car that doesn't get used too much.

I've found loads of online stores with prices from about £35 but just want to make sure before I buy..

Any recommendations?

well when they send a battery online it should be well packaged so it dont get damaged so i dont think you get any problems just make sure you get the right correct battery for your engine

Halfords.

Their own Calcium batteries are said to be very good and come with a 4 year warranty. I think they are now selling Bosch Silver ones which are even better with a masive 5 year Guarantee, but are more expensive.

Hmm,

Halfords own brand SilverCalcium for a 1.6 clio : £72.99

Varta SilverCalcium from Tayna for a 1.6 clio: £41.85

Same specification battery in terms of Ah, cranking power and warranty, the cheaper of the two by a well known brand, I know which one I'd go for.

Make sure you check the fitment for your specific car whatever you order, I just searched for a 1.6 clio to get those prices.:smashin:

Edit, no affiliation to Tayna, just a happy customer!

Thats brilliant, thanks.
I think I'll give Halfords a miss on this occasion and go for something a little cheaper. :smashin:

I'd recommend an Exide Battery, had them as replacements and they have never given me trouble, one was fitted to a Fiat Cinquecento which I left the stereo on low volume for a day and it still started.

Coincidentally I ordered a battery from Tayna for a Laguna only last night, a similar price differential to that stainless quoted. It shipped today and hopefully will arrive tomorrow, I'll let you know how I get on :thumbsup:
