I've had both, thin ones were rubbish, thick ones do the trick! Glad to hear the cars running again though. Always best to ask here first before spending the hard earned money!

Thanks to everyone, it's nice to be part of such a friendly forum

P.S. Car seems to run better, but I'm sure that's just the placebo effect haha
glad you got it sorted pal god bless the scrappies the car will run better with a fresh battery as the alternator isnt working as hard to keep the power in it and trying tp keep the flat battery charged means the alternator will require more effort which in turn will hinder the engine power slightly so the placebo is in fact not!

I had just used mine the day before coming back from Alton Towers. I think it had just had enough and wanted to go to the battery graveyard.

Yeah but I don't know how good that 2nd hand battery is, whilst coming home last night coming up to a junction she thought about stalling until I shouted

New battery on Pay Day!
