    the size of the new battery is good - however the brand Numax is one I would strongly advise ppl avoid like the plague

    guess its too late now though

    the 75 one im guessing is 75a or at least 70-75 range and is the same size most ppl fit when uprating the battery

    its certainly not a good brand and built to a budget - but providing ur happy with it then thats all that matters

    it should fit no probs - have u got the exact measurements at hand?

    ive just heard a lot of bad press regarding these from a few trusted sources

    if u get a good warranty with it then expect to use it!

    if u had access to trade club at vauxhall (ie if u were a paid up AOC member) you could get a GM branded 70amp battery for £55 but fingers crossed the Numax one fits the bill
