before teh car was left to sit there, i had problems with it, it kept dying on me as i was driving along (wasn,t keeping it's charge). if it is just the battery that would be perfect, as that will cost me around 50, an alternator will be around 180+ lol, i only work 30 hours per week on the new living wage (UK), and i have 2 kids to look after as well, so not on a great deal on money
