    That's fkn hilarious. April 2017 was the first registration of mine but it was handled differently, what a mess. Even though I'm booked for the replacement, I still have to travel 40km to get this done ...

    Btw, where are you located?

    Not entirely true. A friend of mine has a 2017 Superb and it has a Varta AGM battery 7P0 915 105 the exact same battery as my 2017 B8 Passat.

    Not so sure AGMís are that much tougher. Mine is showing signs of wear after 3 years. Odd things were happening like the heated steering wheel turning itself on after cranking on a cold morning but for most part performing well.

    I bought one of those batttery monitors BM2. The other morning it showed 8.9v on the crank test.

    When people use the term AGM, they don’t refer to the brand, it’s not the brand. The AGM is short for Absorbed Glass Mat construction of the battery. Where EFB states for the Enhanced Flooded Battery, which is a compromise, and cheap alternative to AGM style batteries. The EFB is nothing more than glorified wet lead acid old technology battery with a bit stronger internals than standard lead acid batteries.

    The biggest life reducer of your AGM battery is the stop start system. Get rid off the stop start and your battery life should extend dramatically.

    You live in Ireland.
