car battery.

Post by staffie » Sat Dec 05, 2020 1:28 pm

hello petrol heads, our car battery (sealed) on negative terminal now has corrosion forming, have already cleaned and applied grease on two occasions in the past, now I presume it's on the way out, question is best place to purchase new one with out being overcharged, yes some can be dearer than others, (heavy duty) all comments welcome.

If you want cheap and dont mind changing it yourself go to Andreas Kannas opposite Ship Shape, or Costas tyres will fit it for a bit more.

I had the same need a couple of years ago but found that most suppliers only offered non descript brands. I wanted a Varta or a Bosch and struggled to find a supplier. Eventually found Kapodistrias Automotive Parts in Yeroskipo (behind Debenhams) and got a HD Bosch Silver battery. Asked for a discount expecting a negative response but got 15% off which worked out to be the same cost I was quoted by the guys on Mesogi road.

It was originally €168 but I got it for €145 ish. You may get one cheaper but wont be as good, came with a 5 year guarantee.
