get ahold of an interstate store, that carrys batts for semis and everything. Ask them for a blemish one, they usually look fine and perform perfect for 60 bucks


Where did my sig go? help me find it..........

if your willing to spend $120 for a brand new one, just go to autozone or pepboys. And the size doesn't matter, they are universal. It's well worth the money. My car starts up way better than when i first got the car. They are supposed to last twice as long to. I got the red top.

Red top= $120
yellow top= $150

Blue top is marine mainly for boats, yellow top is great for audio, red top is a starter battery. I use the red top but they are all great batteries. If you have a hard pounding system get the yellow they reserve is longer.

yeah, like GOLD said - I was also looking at the blue top initially because it matched my theme a lot better but after a little research I found that it is for marine craft. Therefore I went with the yellow top considering my audio will be going through some major upgrades... thumbsup

Hook up with someone that work at an Autozone. I use to work there and bought one for my Girlfriend for about $89 with my discount. I quit a few months ago but you cant beat that discount. Planning on going back and working a few hours just for the discount. The RED Optima is for Automobiles. You can also use the Yellow if you have and amp,neon light,etc, in your car.Like Goldcelica said.

Mine just died tonight. I don't have the money for an optima though. I just had to get a regular one cry.

By the way, to those with the optima, did you just stretch the lines or did you buy new ones? (because the terminals are reversed on the optima)

$36 bucks? O shit, that is a good deal.

I want to get a Red one with a set of grounding kits, that would be nice.
