    Replacement battery

    Have had a look and prices seem to vary a bit but these seem fairly cheap- Notice there are a couple each of the Bosch and Exide. Can I go wrong here or am I as well going for the cheaper?

    New Front Sachs ?

    The new set I bought off ebay were originally from Jesse I was told. Just bear in mind any sets will more than likely need a seal change.

    Insurance Again

    In the cases where agreed values are not in place have most people not eventually managed to get a decent payout despite initial hassle?
