No coming from Good Years as I’ve only had the car a few months I’m afraid - looking forward to putting them to the test but straight away feel more confident in the wetBe interested to hear your thoughts on the PS5’s once you’ve had chance to wear them in a touch. Are you coming from PS4’s?
does this 75AH Yuasa YBX5069 fit Properly in gt86 or are the the terminals the wrong way round ? any problems fitting?Car still sitting unused (hope to be out in it next month subject to a fresh MOT) so checked the battery voltage with my cheapo Amazon accessory socket Voltmeter.
It's showing a fairly healthy 12.2 Volts due to fitting a new 75AH Yuasa YBX5069 (£92 direct from Tayna's website) slightly down from 12.4V when I fitted it 6 days ago.
The previous 6 year old YBX3014 was still essentially "ok" (just before removal it had started the car easily with a reading of 11.7V after a full off car charge 9 days previously IIRC) and I probably would have stuck with it for longer if car was still my daily driver.
However car hasn't been used since November and moving it every 3 or 4 weeks to stop the (overinflated) tyres flatspotting became a tedious ritual of opening the car manually / setting off the alarm / removing the battery to charge it / temporarily fitting a supplementary (motorcycle) battery to silence the alarm......
Admittedly it seems that some of the time this was also due to an ageing fob battery 🙂 (CR1632 now also replaced) but with BOTH batteries replaced things are looking alot better generally for a car that will now only see occasional use.
On the slight downside the bigger beefier (15 AH extra capacity) 5069 weighs an extra 3.2Kg.
A point to note if you're interested in a YBX5069, it's officially 272mm long (12mm longer than the battery tray) but the "footprint" is only around 255mm.......
