    used to run one of the Halfords Calcium batteries in my old 206, never had an issue with it, did the job perfectly well and I had the piece of mind that they'd do a straight swap any time in the first 4 years if it ran down and the car didn't start because of it.

    wouldn't touch one of their cheaper batteries though, have heard stories of them not lasting very long at all
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    The old ones were made by Bosch, the new ones are made by Varta?
