Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

That’s all I ever seem to do with my collection these days (along with replacement batteries.)

That was my feeling too.

Yes I bet - I seem to go through car batteries at an alarming rate

Although I imagine the buyer wouldnít be driving it, just storing it as it is.
They were delivered new needing work, so it's safe to say unless you want to park this up in a collection, it'll need work

Thatís all I ever seem to do with my collection these days (along with replacement batteries.)

FWIW, I bought a pair of CTEK battery maintainers/chargers for the 968 (MSX 5.0) and the bug (MSX 3.8), arguably the best things I ever bought for them, given how few miles they do nowadays - the larger one has more than earnt its keep by resurrecting a couple of well-dead batteries that wouldn't take a charge from anything else, but the main advantage is that I can now disconnect the maintainer, turn the key and go, instead of swear at them, remove and charge the battery, then reinstall the battery and go a day later!

Yeah, I have trickle chargers on all my cars dude (and the earth straps disconnected on some.)

The batteries still only last a couple of winters. I'll guarantee, come the springtime, a few of the batteries will just be dead - won't take a charge.

It doesn't help that two-thirds of my cars are in storage in the UK and don't get started/run often enough.
