Best bet is to phone around a few local garages if you need it today, you will need to change the positive and negative clamps to UK size for it to fit

When I got mine it had sleaves around the terminals so you could remove them to fit nap size or leave them on to fit uk.

I just got two uk terminals and connected them to the two cables and that was all, the battery was a good shout! Its great! Barely has chance to turn over before it sparks up, really happy with the battery choice. Would advise this battery for anyone looking for a replacement!!!

A quality battery is a must, until I changed mine both the alarm and Windows played up, all issues gone after the upgrade.

Also as most of us run extras like dash cams the bigger battery helps.
