Platinum Battery?

My car is taking a bit longer to start lately, and sometimes the clock and fuel gauge flicker and restart when i turn the ignition- so I'm feeling I'll need a new battery asap.

Has anyone heard of platinum prestige batties? I'm thinking of taking the hassle free option and getting one from kwik fit down the road-otherwise i'd buy a Bosch and fit it myself but it would save me a lot of driving to buy and dispose the battery.

I wouldn't go to Kwik-Fit!!

If you have a Euro Car Parts near you, they offer battery disposal. They were doing a £3 trade-in too.

Another option is to stick it up on the Facebook sales/swaps page as being free for collection

They still are offering £3 trade in

It's surprising though how people don't steal things when you want them to. We had a traffic cone left on the road outside our house after they finished some roadworks, and that stayed there for weeks without being pinched. We had to ring up in the end to get it taken away!

i might just get it delivered by europarts, its only £45 on-line price for a bosch battery apparently, the £3 id get for the battery i'd lose on fuel to get there. I'll probably just take the battery to the local recycling centre

Stick it out front somewhere with a sign saying "£5" and it'll go!!

I've done that with a few things lol

Funniest one didn't even have a sign on it - it was an old shoe rack. It was next to bin ready to throw out when all of a sudden there was a tap at the window. A chap had picked it up, waved at us and gave us a thumbs up and walked off. My Mum just about wet herself laughing!!
