Superb item and hassle free delivery, as expected from these guys. Same problem with breather pipes as mentioned elsewhere, just needed to cut a piece off the longer one to replace the shorter one, which does not quite reach. Absolutely no bother though, and took 10 mins to fit from start to finish. Battery is smaller than the Panasonic, but fits perfectly into the battery tray with the existing standard clamp.A highly recommended item for your '5

As normal delivery was great. As it says in the write up a direct replacement battery. Installed in 10 mins with no hassle. Only thing I found was the tubes for the breathers needs a modification to take the two pipes, but if this is all have to do then hay ho, what a saving on the original battery. Great Battery.

BRILLIANT .... as usual.Was delivered in around 48 hours.It starts the car, which is a bonus on the old one !! haha .... so it must be good.Was smaller than my old battery, therefore doesn't take up the whole of the tray,but the clamp holds it down perfectly so it's all good.very worthwhile purchase ... especially for the winter months, or like me you runa larger than normal sound system.Thanks again MX5 Parts.

Had my westco battery on my roadster now for 2 years and 3 months not driven the roadster for a few months so had the battery on trickle charge overnight to charge it, tried it this morning and nothing! jump started the car drove it for an hour switched off the car at my garage and nothing again, checked the battery and it\'s dead as a door nail and incapable of holding a charge! Warranty is 2 years so it just about lasted that but I would have expected it to have a lasted longer! Good battery while it lasted but didn\'t last long enough for the money!Editors Note: Please read the care instructions carefully. You can not charge a gel type battery overnight. If it is fully discharged it will need to be on a slow trickle charge for at least a week.The care instructions are here: http://www.mx5parts.co.uk/instructions/westco.pdf

Developed problem with battery. After contacting MX5PARTS they arranged collection and within 3 days received replacement under guarantee. I admire your professional approach to customer service - a service sadly lacking nowadays from most companies!

Battery is perfect now that I have replaced my 'dicky' fan belt. Replacement belt supplied by this company in the usual efficient way and fitted by a friend. Thanks again

Just like most of the other reviews, fast delivery, fitted in a couple of minutes, already charged up with more power than the original, engine starts more smoothly, alarm doesn't go off for no reason any more. Excellent.
