Battery with 45 Ah and 330 A cranking seems a little low, is that correct? Mine is 60 Ah and 540 A cranking I believe.

Ah, I did wonder if that was the case. I ordered a new battery this week too and was wondering if there would be enough room once I fit all my bits in the bay.

Assuming all goes to plan it will need an mot when it comes back and a full valet and paint work will be getting ceramic coated by a mate of mine
and I’m going to enjoy it tbh
I wish I never tinkered with the damn thing
I hope to go fishing in the sea of golf rs that have populated the place since I last had it on the road
