Usual lightning service to supply an excellent replacement battery that is slightly smaller than the original Panasonic but fits comfortably. Definately has more oomph than standard battery,especially noticeable in the present freezing conditions.Whether it will last 5 years like it's predecessor remains to be seen,but it looks well made anyway

My local Garage tried in vain to source a battery for my Mk1 Roadster, so I ordered one from you late on Monday afternoon - delivered on Wednesday morning - fitted in five minutes.My Garage was so impressed, they've asked for MX5parts details so they can order for their Roadster and MX5 customers themselves!If you've never tried MX5parts.co.uk before, prepare to be impressed - very, very impressed!

Anybody out there thinking of getting a replacement battery for their 5, this is the one to get. don't waste your time with Halfords or your local Mazda dealer. fits exactly the same as the original Panasonic unit. Power delivery is excellent, especially if you're running alot of in car entertainment. A1 service from the boys at MX5 parts. Fit it and forget it.

You have 2 options:1) go to Halfords and have them witter on at you about a Mazda fixing kit and how they don't know what it is.2) buy from here, have battery delivered next day, take out old battery, put new one in. Job done!TIP: I struggled trying to get the terminal off that was furthest away. But then I didn't think to undo the closest one, then slide the battery tray closer to make the other one more accessible. Figured that out after much swearing! If you're a maintenance numpty like me this might help!

Fast delivery. Easy to fit. Even with the £8.00 delivery charge, it was still £10 cheaper than my local Mazda dealership.
