Could it have impact on my car if there are less ampers? Can I have problems in future
Expert:  Robert replied 2 years ago.
Hi...

CCA - 440amps is the cold crank power so that gives you the amount of power the battery will give on cold start..the higher the number the better starting..but generally higher cca is better for diesels than appossed to petrols in some cases.. the AH is the amp hours so this tells you how many hours you can sit without the battery being charged using the assesories before falling to 10v - but the battery you mention does seem to list for that car aswell as upto 650cca - so entirely optional to maybe source a 640cca instead of what you have..but it wont have impact on the car running performance
