A Bosch S5008 or Varta E44 battery would be my choice. Expect to pay between £80.00 - £95.00. Try battery megastore website.

I just put a Yausa in mine from Halfords. 770A, £94 using a trade card and a 5 year guarentee. Massive improvement over the 400A Skoda Yeti battery the previous owner had put in it. Lasted me a year though before I got tired of having to jump it after the doors had been open for 20min while working on it!
