As above i'm trying to get a new battery for my corsa XE but i have always had a battery from a cavalier gsi so i dont know if the standard little corsa sport battery would have worked. Anyone advise? or any newer vauxhall batteries likely to work?

get a decent make 063 battery with a decent warranty, will be fine. we sell 4 year ones at work for 43 for Exide. standard petrol corsa b battery. If you do want a slightly bigger one ask for an 065. TBH id be more worried about getting a good make of battery, cheap batteries like moura and UKB are proper shit.
