Re: Stilo Battery

I changed mine for a Halfrauds one, Which sorted a few start up problems (warning messages) cost 65.00 fitted fine.

As for the car info stored you would only loose the time and date which can be reset via the menu button, took 10 mins to change the battery and reset the clock.

Re: Stilo Battery

The battery you need is a 065 (standard UK coding). The Heavy Duty one is an 075 but stick with the 065 for the 1.2, it'll be more than adequate!

Re: Stilo Battery

Its very rooode to shout so!

Anyhoo, i never use Hellfrauds for batteries now, i go to a small parts factor, they always sell better stuff cheaper! It was gonna cost me £50 for small mini battery, underpowered at best! Went to a parts factor, who said Puma battery would fit at a squeeze, much higher capacity battery! Silver acid something or other (basically they ones Hellfrauds charge you double for). Varta branded, and it cost? £30! I've discharged the battery fully so many times it doesn't deserve to still work, but 3 years on and it still holds a good charge! You won't get that with a Hellfrauds unit!

Re: Stilo Battery

I only bought a Halfrauds one because it was the easy option (yeah it cost me more). I bought the high powered one and it solved the problem, as I am looking to sell my car in the coming months and buy a Abarth so I am not really that bothered what the battery will be like in 3 years Good advise though, if time had not been such a factor I would have shopped about.
