Battery rating for Grande 2.2 diesel


Could anyone confirm the correct min requirement for a 2004 2.2 diesel battery:

Is it 72Ah and CCA 680 A?

Or should it be a higher rating than this (I have read the Renault supplied battery is 80Ah and CCA 800 A.

Is it worth paying the £120 that Renault want or is it better to find an equivalent.

Any othe members experiences would be useful. I have searched all the threads, but does not seem clear cut to me.
