    Could you please tell me if a 12v 61Ah, 330A din (000915 105 AD) battery is adequate for a golf R32 registered 2003, if this is not adequate could you reccommend.

    Any places in Sydney where you can find these Varta Blue/Silver batteries for the MkV GTI?

  • My father has a stock battery made by Banner Batteries in his Golf V from Wolfsburg, DE. Last winter in Poland we could buy Exide from VW Dealer. Sometimes they sell Moll or Bosch. Bosch and Varta use same powerframe technology.
