My gel battery had been letting me down, so I picked this replacement to give me better cranking and to help prevent my battery going flat (alarms and such on the car, not to mention the volts drop disadvantage you get having the battery in the boot). The product appears to have been MADE for the MX5; it really does fit right in, even fitting in the catch tray which I had assumed I would have to leave out. Cranking seems strong and enthusiastic!My only gripe is not really with the product, or even MX5parts.co.uk; why is it delivery companies delivering to non-business adresses can't get their head around the concept of delivering on the weekend? As a teacher its not easy to book a day off (MASSIVE prior warning needed) so I have to have it sent elsewhere, which in this case wasn't an option. It was annoying to look at the tracking feature on the delivery companies website (which is a superb feature I admit) to find that the part I ordered early friday is sat in a warehouse 6 miles from my house all weekend. Meanwhile I had to bump start my car every time it was needed. DELIVERY COMPANIES: CUSTOMERS WANT WEEKEND DELIVERIES!Overall though a great product. Much better than that primadonna panasonic rubbish.

My battery was replaced during a service 6 months ago with a battery which appeared to fit....but it was the beginning of many problems! I noticed that at low revs, the audio would cut out (presumably due to not enough power output from battery). Then, disaster! During the cold spell in December, my car simply would not start - unless jump started. I worried about a starter motor, but I realised it must be the the battery at fault. Even worse, my garage (and MX5parts) was shut during the festive period. For two weeks, I was car-less. My garage were not helpful - "get an auto-electrician to look at your car, could be a power drain" etc. Finally, I ordered and fitted this Westco battery from mx5parts (arrived next day, but to wrong address!) and my car returned back to life! The battery came fully charged. I managed to get a refund from my garage and gave him a printout of the relevant web pages about this Westco battery. The morale of the story? It simply is not worth gambling on other batteries (even if your garage/mechanic/motor shop insists their battery will be fine) - do yourself a favour and order this Westco battery to protect yourself from having a similar experience to me! In fact, I still have to source replacement battery clamps etc. which were removed by the garage when the first battery was fitted.

I came home one night to a pitifully bleating alarm and a very flat battery. The next day I ordered a new battery at lunch time and it arrived in less than 24 hours. It fitted in the original tray and clamp just fine and the leads dropped into place. The breather pipes need a bit of re-routing as the outlets from the WestCo battery are at the front not on the sides as they are on the Panasonic I took out. Thw car spins up fine now. many thanks.

The new battery took just ten minutes to fit. The starter motor now spins much faster and the engine fires up immediately - much better than with the old Panasonic battery. Usual super efficient delivery. Thanks again for another great product superb service. It's always a pleasure doing business with you.
