    Default Higher Rated Alternator

    I have a 100A at the moment but would fitting a 105A be dangerous / detrimental / stupid?

    There is nothing extra on the car that would be a drain ie, no big stereo and no travel kettle's!!

    I would have thought the car would only draw as much as it needs, 105A would be the max it's capable of

    There will be no problems. The alternator only puts out as much current as is demanded from it by the elctrical system, up to its maximum rating.
