Where is the best place to buy a new battery for a W204 C250CGi (Grangemouth are getting a message). Just seeing if there are other options

No need to apologise, my indy has quoted £199+VAT which seems steep but looking even on ECP it is a 019 AGM and they are not cheap

Yeah last time I checked ECP they quoted a Bosch and I’m sure it was over £350 for an 019 from memory, hence my ‘laziness’!

Tayna say it is an 096, ECP say it is an 027 or an 019AGM so I am not sure.

ECP have 33% discount with SAVE33 code

096 is a physically smaller and lower capacity battery than an 019.

Personally I'd simply swap like for like - if it has an 019 now swap another 019 in and ignore the 'expert' websites.

The car is being serviced and they said the battery is on its way out. I will take a look later to confirm which one it is.

Me too,

Me too.
I would even go further, if there is any confusion re size, I will always go for the largest that will fit and connect up correctly

Glad you're sorted.

+1 for Grangemouth - they were helpful and quick and I bought like for like - the Mercedes battery I replaced was 10 years old so here's to a long life and happiness!
