Not sure what your winters are like there, but here we look for a 1000 cold cranking amp battery. Should be about $100.

yellow if you have aftermarket audio equipment, red if you just need a better starter

yellow top is universal. Im pretty sure they are the same size as the red top. Yellow top is about $170 thought. Red top is about $120. I got the red top in a few weeks ago. I think it starts up much much better than when i first got the car.

yellow top is a lot larger than red top. the reason i ask is i've that tanabe strut bar, the stock battery is giving me a tight fit. red top would fit just fine; however, i'm wondering how it fit with yellow top and tanabe strut bar together...
