I first attmepted to buy a replacement standard battery locally.
Having the old battery and bracket for size meant I could easily check stockists shelves instead of relying on catalogue descriptions.
There was nothing available that would be an easy fit. some would even leave a bulge in the boot floor.

The Westco fit was similar, but not exactly as the original battery (05 reg MK2.5).
But a slight bend on the battery bracket and a couple of spacer washers sorted everything.

After few months of use I can confidently report that a charger is essential if you do not regularly use the car.
The self discharge rate is very high.

As for the battery life? Ask me again in a year or two.
