You lads heading to Northpoint, the LMS lads are at the back of Northpoint 2, no need to go to SPSV office @ Northpoint 1.

Halpos me 12v is acting up a bit and I'm afraid to get the meter done before I replace the battery.The last cheap non AGM Bosch one only lasted 15 months.Might have to splash out for the Yuasa.Need to get working meself I'm starting to spend the communion money.

On my previous Prius i had to replace the 12v which i did with a battery i bought from McCabes Toyota at the time,€120,that gave me trouble about two years later,went to get another one but still had the receipt and they replaced it FOC,they have a 3 yr warranty....i used to leave the parking lights on when i'd stop so i reckon it was that,they're a small capacity battery,enough to energise for starting,
Get an original ye hungry fecker!!

I think they're about 240.I've been through two cheaper ones in 3 years but because I bought them online it's not worth chasing the warranties.Mickgarage don't honor the warranties on their Exide Batteries so be warned.The Bosch one has a warranty but I'd need to post it back to the UK.Loadabollix.

At the moment the original Yuasa is in it but it's not holding the optimum charge.Ive read the Prius computer uses a lot of juice on standby so you need to be driving them regularly.

With most of these tests, you can go in early and they will do you ASAP.
I had an NCT appointment the year before last fer 11am, but I had a fare
dropping very close to the NCT center at 9.40am so I called in at 9.45am
on the off-chance.
Sulky P.M.'ssy behind the counter sez "Das fer 11am" but still took my keys
and the car was passed out within 20 mins.
