Hi. I drove my automobile, a 1999 Opel Zafira without a fanbelt for about 10km after which I replaced the fanbelt. The battrey that was discharged quickly charged itself. Some days later the battery discharged and even after I recharged it it still discharged again. So I replaced the battery after confirming that the alternator was ok and still am having the same problem. What can I do? Is there a possibilty that the alternator is not providing enough charge to charge the battrey? How can i test the charging terminals of the automobile with a multimeter to know if it is in order? Thanks

I'm driving a 2012 MK6 Volkswagen Golf Edition R (1.2 TSI). While I like a lot of things about the automobile I am increasingly frustrated by the significant understeer, lack of steering feel in general and the poor seats. I am thinking of changing to a BMW 3 Series M Sport (318d or 320d) around the 2009 or 2010 mark, using this as a trade in. I do very low mileage but I don't mind spending a bit more. Am I mad? I have a bit of a mental block changing from a 12 reg downwards.
