Hi my car has been parked up off road and I am looking to get it back up and running the battery has died

Please can you recommend the correct battery do I need to buy a Porsche battery or can I get a compatible from the likes of Halfords

I read about cranking amps

Many thanks
 
I had a Bosch S5 008 in mine for over 10 years, I replaced it last year with a Bosch S5 010 which is slightly larger and has slightly more amps, as it's slightly bigger the clamp fits in the next hole along

Bosch S5 008 278w x 175L x 190H ,capacity 77ah, 780 cca

Bosch S5 010 315W x 175L x 175H, capacity 85ah, 800 cca

I got it from Tanya batteries and it arrived the next day, 5 year guarantee, and was £105

Mac
 
Apart from the Tanya bit, I'd second that. The battery place is called Tayna.
