Hi all,

My Civic didn't start today so, with a bit of help, I've taken the battery out and put it on charge.

Hoping that does the trick when it goes back in tomorrow morning, but I'm also thinking the battery is now six years old, so it should probably be replaced soon.

Long story short: which battery should I be going for?

Bosch units seem to be mentioned a fair few times, but is there any way to find out which is compatible with my car? It's a 2007 Civic Type-S 1.8 petrol.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the recommendation, I hadn't even heard of Yuasa. Had a look at their website but it isn't telling me a great deal - how can I find out which Yuasa battery is compatible with my car?

I found a handy little tool on the EuroCarParts website that lets me put my number plate in and then lists compatible parts. For batteries, it suggests:

Lion Battery (Battery 158 3 Year Guarantee) - £60.00
Bosch Battery (S4 Battery 158 4 Year Guarantee) - £69.60

Is there a Yuasa equivalent to those?

The euro car parts website is notoriously bad for recommending the wrong batteries, why not try Cox Motor Parts, if you are registered with them as a Civinfo member, I'm pretty sure their prices for batteries are good,and you will get the correct battery for your car.

davros, thanks for the heads up! Just found out about the Cox Motor Sports loyalty scheme, so I'm in the process of signing up for that.

Here's the battery their website recommends: Genuine Honda Civic 1.8 Petrol Battery-2007-2011 [31500ST3111HE] - £49.99 : Cox Motor Parts Direct - Genuine Honda Brakes Clutches & Accessories

That seem like a good one? I don't know one battery from another, but this is a Genuine Honda and seeing as my current one has lasted six years, a Honda replacement seems logical.

I think it should be a good 'un, but you will need to add vat and poss delivery to that price. I think you need to spend a bit more (maybe £70+ vat) with them to get free delivery. I have always had a great service from Dan, perhaps give him a call to confirm things, and usually next day delivery , 3 yr guarantee too.
