This is for all owners in the UK Plus shipping costs
This is a very significant and welcome development.
Who do owners have to approach to get this price? Is there a letter or some reference/contact. Is the price being adjusted on the dealership parts lists? Does the price include fitting? If not how much is that?
To clear up ambiguity the price I charge for the 'BetterBattery' is currently £2000 inc fitting. That also includes the Perkins once over on the car at my place, free advice and trip to the local breakfast cafe. That's going to be on par with the new Oem price once you add fitting. The BB warranty is two years rtb not sure about the Oem one?
I'm happy for everyone in the UK including me that Honda have got a bit of a grip, as the battery replacements were starting to encroach a lot into my R&D time, and this will at least enable everyone who wishes to do so to get one and have it fitted locally and more promptly.
Remember the old battery is your property so keep hold of it if getting an Oem one fitted.
We need the old cases and cells for when the Oem supply dries up.
I have stickied this thread and edited the title so it stands out and is easier to find.
