Im looking for a new battery for my Series 3 and there doesn't seem to be many C34959 batteries about - can anyone suggest an equivalent please.

I have Bosch S4 026 in mine, seem durable and fit well.
Not original appearance though.

Not an odd size. Motorcraft, Exide, several other manufacturers make a replacement. No worries.

Nowhere near an original look. A bit on the expensive side, but worth it IMHO.

Hi Bernie...saw it on their web page so assumed they would have them :banghead: Just had a search on JL site and the group 35 battery is suggested as almost identical in size and terminal position to the original.....search group 35 for lots of options....Steve
