your first battery at euro is good but expensive same as mine 700crank amps the second one you pick is way to small only 400crank amps and wouldnt start your t4 im confident they have it listed wrong as you would normally have that size for a small car, for the price diif the one i pick is great german quality and same power output as more expensive ones

If you just happen to be in Cardiff at all you could use my card. :).

Forgot to mention, they start at £40, but you can get some seriously high capacity ones in there, think they are all S4's too.

The power plant for maximum demands: Bosch-Battery S6 with AGM-Technology

The new AGM battery technology by Bosch is absolutely maintenance-free, 100% leak-proof in any position and extremely vibration-proof.

Dependably ensuring the multitude of comfort, safety and system functions of the latest generation of cars requires a battery technology that meets extreme energy demands while promising reliable starting power at the same time. The new Bosch-Battery S6 with AGM Technology (Absorbent Glass Mat) guarantees this power for maximum performance in starting and power supply everyday.

Thanks to AGM-Technology with fixed electrolyte, the Bosch-Battery S6 is extremely cycle-proof and long lasting. Bosch even recommends the Bosch-Battery S6 for middle-class cars with power starting at 3,500 watts and for vehicles with an extreme cycle load, such as taxis.

Constant top performance where others throw in the towel

Starting too many electrical consumers simultaneously will push a generator to its capacity limits. Basic starter batteries can balance this deficiency a maximum of 100 times at the height of their capacities. After that they begin to loose considerable power, which leads to troublesome starts. The Bosch S6 can balance it 300 times. Its high energy flow rate ensures the output and input of lots of energy.

Depending on their equipment, the Bosch S6 is also recommendable for cars currently equipped with a 66 Ah-, 74 Ah-, 88 Ah-, 90 Ah- and a 100 Ah-battery as a standard.

Advantages of the AGM-Technology

Extremely cycle- and vibration-resistant
100 % maintenance-free, tilt-resistant and safe from leaks
Double action time, triple energy flow rate
Installable in any position

AGM stuff is amazing, it's hardly new though as Panasonic made them years ago for Japanese cars.
