    I am wondering what size of battery to get for my 2 L DOHC Cabrio it looks like it needs 60A/h but that looks like a tight fit in the box
    Any suggestions would be very welcome
    Many thanks
    Nigel

    Not sure where your battery fits in the Cabrio, but here are flics of the Hunter installation. This battery is a Bosch S4-004 (12v)! 60A/H 540A [CCA]? which turns the 2.3 DOHC over much better than its knackered predecessor did.


    It is marginally taller, needing a little taken out of the bonnet hinge, partly due to me fitting a rubber sheet/gasket under the battery to protect the bulkhead moulding.

    With this little baby you don't have to worry about size.

    I believe that's a high A/H motorbike battery, a lot of the Lotus 7 facing fraternity use them as they are both small and reliable, plus I believe they are solid state so you can pretty much mount them how and where you want. On my wish list.

    Its the battery in my Marlin. Powerful, reliable and small. This has been my battery of choice for two years now and the car starts on the button and is around the same cost as a standard battery.

    Can even be oriented upside down.

    Great battery and don't know why modern cars don't use them.

    Regards

    Adrian
