    How many miles per year are you driving and does your stop/start still working?

    Easy to install, red cable to battery positive terminal and the black cable to a suitable earth point in the boot (not directly to the battery negative terminal), I fitted the panel mounted charging socket into the small plastic blanking plate on the right hand side of the boot.
