    As title , my current battery is coming up on 6 years old and the car does some weird things now and again. So factoring in that Mercedes recommend changing the battery when its 5 years old i figure its time to swap it out before it dies.

    The question is which battery to go for ? I can get one from euro parts when they are on 50% discount , they stock 4 types.

    Exide
    Bosch
    Lion
    Duracell
    They are all AGM type batteries for stop start.
    The question is which one ???
    Thanks guys.

    Well , went to the stealers today. Price for a new battery £247 . So i think i will go to euro parts and save £100.
