i would say that's good, i have a 17 plate 1.6hdi 120 stop/start, the FLASHING battery warning on the dash kept flashing, although it still started as normal, the stop/start never kicked in as it used to, i replaced the battery about 6 month's ago, i do a lot of motorway driving to and from work, 45 miles each way. i purchased the car, one year old with just under 30K on the clock, it now has 90,100, still GOING STRONG !!!I have a 2014 308 1.6D Allure with 48000 miles on the clock.
Would you consider replacing the battery around now, before it becomes troublesome.
I would think seven years for a battery is pretty good going.
I changed the battery myself. I bought a "VARTA E39 Silver Dynamic AGM 70Ah 760A" and it cost me in the currency of my country the equivalent of £100. The old battery was the same, Varta AGM.No, not yet.
I queried the price with the Peugeot garage, as it needs to be a stop/start one. The prices now are £169 and £199!
TAYNA BATTERYS do decent prices with free delivery - they also sell on EBAY and if you time it right you can get 20% further discountI changed the battery myself.

It should come with decent charge and as far as I'm aware the important thing is to follow the BSI shutdown and restart procedure correctly to avoid corrupting the BSI unitJust checked on Tanya batteries, and a Varta Silver Dynamic is £118 including delivery, or a Bosch one for £8 more.
A couple of questions.
Will it need to be charged prior to fitting?
Never fitted a SS battery before, is there something regarding the correct power module?
