    Chunklamb's right, but you can get a good garage to test/check those, a lot of garages offer a free battery check at this time of year, which should also check your alternator is charging the battery. I have a 120 and I wouldn't say it's difficult, but it does seem to take longer to start some mornings, there's quite a few threads about the 120s being difficult to start.
