Anyone got an up to date recommendation for battery for the above 2010? Had it on charge... just went to start it a just got the solenoid clicking,.. I'm assuming its the battery as I stupidly allowed it to go very flat and from what I can tell it's the original battery. Is it ok/better to get a higher amp hour and does anyone have any brands recommendations and approx price please. Many thanks all

I’d always go for a Bosch S5-010 (85Ah and 800 CCA, 5 year guarantee), assuming your car isn’t under a Porsche Warranty that is. Eurocarparts have them at £146, they can be probably be a little cheaper if you search around a bit.

I’ve got the Bosch too. By mail order they are usually about £100.

Maybe worth noting if you wanted a Porsche Warranty you won’t get passed the 111point check without a Porsche battery Cop
