Gave up on Varta/Bosch, CCA too low at 330A for UK winters and only 45Ah capacity (Varta B32/Bosch S4 021) and too many weird issues when they age, self discharging being one (Bosch is rebranded Varta).
Only use Yuasa these days, they also make the OE replacement battery, P/N: 31500-ST3-111-HE which is rated at CCA 420A and 48Ah with 3 year guarantee. The aftermarket Yuasa YBX5053 is rated as CCA 430A and 48Ah with 5 year guarantee. Also available from Halfords as the Yuasa HSB053 and is cheaper with a trade card if you can get hold of one.
