    Default Car Battery

    In an attempt so save as much as possible I want to buy a new battery and fit myself for my Figo.
    I'm needing a 628 size car battery.

    Anyone have advice as to where to go?

    Car Mechanics and stores never seem to be tech savvy enough to have online stores to price compare.

    Midas is usually pretty good, you trade the old one in for a discount

    You're going to have to phone a few places to get the best price.

    Try battery centre or any of the tyre shops (supa quick, hi-q, twt)

    Most places give you a "trade-in" offer. Anywhere between 150-300 for "scrap trade-in" as they put it.
    Check Sabbat battery suppliers in your vicinity, cheaper then Midas, good battery, warranty is std etc.

    Find a local spares dealer in the area. I know of a great one in City Deep but that might be a tad far for you
