  1. Thanks for this article, our 1.6 dCi ntec (with start-stop) was incorrectly fitted with a Varta Silver Dynamic E44 (For the 1.5 dCi (non start-stop) since we bought it almost 2 years ago!. We’ve replaced it with a Bosch S5 AGM (S5A08) and now it starts up easily and feels like a much happier car!
