They are good for the returns as well. I had a Bosch S5 which was playing up after 4 years, went back in with the receipt, a quick test and a no questions replacement. Ideal if you are close to a branch.

Carparts4less is where i got mine from, they are same place as ECP but usually cheaper. Use topcashback for money back. I think I paid around £90 for an uprated Bosch.

Bought a Bosch S5 battery from them for one of my other cars a few months ago, much cheaper than CP4L and ECP. Received it the following day, really, really well packaged Thumb

Yeah

I have bought 2 batteries from this company via their eBay shop (I collect Nectar points). Always excellent service!

Thats exactly what i did last year, previous owner kept the the reciept for the battery, i had like one week to go before the warranty was to run out battery started playing up, took it to Euro Car Parts and from an S4 i upgraded to an S5, they checked it quickly and offered me a new battery without any problems... give another year or two ill do the same tjing and upgrade that!!!
