Default Best place to buy a battery in the UK?

My battery seems to be on the way out....it struggled to turn over earlier today, and pressing and holding the driver side window button down didn't automatically close the window.

Can anyone recommend somewhere reasonably priced in the West London area (or mail order) to buy a replacement battery?

Surprising indeed. Any idea how much a Honda dealer would charge?

Any idea if this one from Amazon would be inferior?
Amazon Amazon

(I searched Amazon for "Honda S2000 battery"). I have a load of Amazon vouchers so that would be a bonus.

That Yuasa one from Amazon seems to be a better specification.
Dimensions seems to be the same too.

OEM battery is rated i think 45Ah (amp hour), 380 CCA (cold cranking amps)

The customer Q&A also says that it has a 5 year warranty too, which is 2 years longer than the Honda battery from Cox Motor Parts. I'm not sure why that isn't in the product description though

That is strange, would the warranty be with amazon or with Yuasa?

Hard to say as the warranty isn't mentioned at all in the product description. I'm guessing that it would be a manufacturer's warranty, but Yuasa's website seems to say that their car batteries have a 12 month warranty. Yuasa do seem to have good reviews elsewhere on the web.

Pretty sure Amazon will look after you if something was up with the battery.
Especially if you have vouchers, that is a great help in reducing the cost.
Maybe contact amazon to confirm and ask if they honour the warranty for 5 years?
