    Battery Dilema

    My CLK is showing signs of battery failure, stone flat after 5 days parked up. It is the original one, so it has done well. Question is do I go for a premium £100.00 job or a cheapo ? Common sense says £100.00 job but the cheapo's seem to carry the same warranty as the more expensive stuff :dk:
