iv still not got a battery for my car its dead now needs boosting everytime and wont hold charge. But I cant find an exact raplcement, not in the UK anyway, I know a lot of people run FMIC's so use micra batteries are these batterys smaller as mine wont fit sideways? and how do you route the live wire as it doesn't seem to reach around the side of the fuse box? If people can post up some photos of how they have their batteries mounted id appreiciate it as im struggling at the minute and don't want to buy something that wont fit. Thanks John

Posts are the wrong way around on that one. I can't see how the standard power cable will reach around the fuse box
