Have seen that website already. But they don't list out batteries based on DIN!

Their website doesn't list any tech specs or if it does, I've gone blind

Praful Bhaina, just call up a dealer and ask them if they have a DIN55/50 equivalent and ask for a quote and exchange rate for the old battery.

Don't overdo the "dhakka start" - take care of the catcon - IIRC it costs around 15k for the palio

Ok, got a quote and some news.

Manufacturer reccomends DIN50, Amaron recommends DIN45!

Quotes I got :-

DIN55 - 6.6K
DIN45 - 5.75K

500 bux for the old battery and 100 bux for home delivery, the currenty battery is totally drained!

Amaron does not make a DIN50/55 which is why they recommend a DIN45. My dad got his car (a 1.6 Palio) fitted with a DIN55. Go in for the 50 if you are not keen on the 55.

Got a quote of 5250 [Battery] - 500 [Old Batt] = 4750 from BASE Terminal batteries for DIN55. With free home delivery.

Now I intend on letting go of this car in 1-1.5 years time, should I opt for BASE instead as its cheaper?

Not push starting the car as current battery is completely dead. How are the reviews for BASE?

go for it - a new battery will last that long for sure, i mean 1-1.5 years.

How many kms did the car clock? 12,000kms by you + ___?

My cousin installed the same battery for his swift diesel. No issues since 2 years

Ironically, since I posted yesterday about my cars battery (TATA GREEN), I am having some starting problems. Not sure if its battery related or something else
