    Ask motor factors ?

    As long as the voltage is the same no difference. My C200 has had a higher capacity battery in it a long while with no bother.

    A lot of factory cars had small batteries and factors were told to uprate them .

    Look at where battery is going is your one in the boot and have the space for a longer one.

    No. The ah rating of a battery only refers to how much charge it can hold. So think of it like a slight bigger bucket of electricity than the 70ah one! Within reason, you could fit any amp hour (ah) battery you wanted provided the voltage is the same.
