Default Cost of Car Battery

I'm posting this in case there are Citroen owners like me (C5) who need to find out the cost of replacing their car battery.

Replacement at C&C: approx $220
(OEM by FIAMM; comes with 1 year or 20k km warranty)

Replacement at Outside Shop: approx $175 (for Bosch S5)

Replacement by Mobile Supplier: approx $165 + $20 labour charges (Amaron)

what size is c5 battery?
from varta web catalog looks like a DIN 55 size or 60?

global/ Bosch S5 Din 55, 62ah for c3/c4/picasso is 130-150 range
amaron is about 10$ more expensive

there is a shop selling global/amaron in Level 2 amk autopoint
when change uses spare battery to maintain power supply / engine not running

Can't confirm battery size for C5 yet. Some claim DIN62, others claim DIN74.

C&C price seems to be a standard price regardless of battery size.

Arrow Tyres quoted $125 for Bosch S5 DIN62 and $175 for DIN74.

Our favourite mobile vendor quoted $165 + $20 for Amaron DIN62.

should be the same
its DIN55, but max capacity for a DIN55 is 62ah, so far 62ah DIN55 best is S5 bosch, amaron or global, no comments about the OEM one , lasted me 1 yr 1 month and died in malacca

i fitted Bosch S5 on my c4 before i sold it, rx178 also using it now, $120-130 range at arrow, they quoted me that price for 74ah as well for S5

74ah a lot bigger , confirm not the size for C5, i fitted 74ah amaron for 170$

By "Global", you mean "Globatt"?

This is a relatively new brand I see propping out. Indonesian, right?

I like to change my battery now.
C&C told me that outside vendor battery capacity is lower. so must double check with them and get the approve one.
My picasso c4 changed once last year and now running low after my servicing yesterday.

Can someone advise me the contact for the mobile guy?
I like amaron brand.
And capacity must be same as the original battery not my existing one.
