They did this before probably 20 years ago? Or the AA did - I forget which.
Overcharging, excuse the pun, for batteries I think it was.
Didn't see the program, but rang Porsche today for a price on an 80Ah battery today - they quoted £185+VAT :fail
It's just a regular lead acid 096 fitment battery for a 10+ year old car. What the hell is that about? If it had been half sensible (£100/120 inc VAT maybe?) I might have gone with it to keep stuff original but no chance at that price/age of the car.
I think the last MB 096 battery I bought earlier this year was £62+VAT - a bit of a difference, and that was for a 100Ah..
I'll stick with a Varta/Bosch etc for this one I think.
