Battery SP

I know that modern batteries have a great many improvements since the SP was launched but I am not sure what to replace the failing battery in my SP with.

Re: Auction

interesting ! I see that the original green logbook for this car was listed on Ebay a few days ago for £70 and I sent David Reid an email advising him as I thought it would only be of interest to him.
