As far as I know you are gonna want the Optima Yellow Top D34/78. It has 750 cold cranking amps, and a 125 minute reserve time if you plan on sitting without your car running with the radio on. It is 1 inch wider than the stock battery so you may have to flatten the sides of the battery tray to get it to fit snugly, and if you have a strut tower bar because height may become an issue.

I have one! it's really good, I left the dome light on for 48 hours, and the battery was flat... haha... but after I push started it and drove for a while, it was all good... oh, it was -25c outside so...

this the new compact size (designed for compact cars)? wish it wasn't yellow (doesn't go with my black car and silver accents in the engine compartment)...
