Question type: Maintenance & Repair

with an aftermarket version. The OEM is produced by Exide, which chiefly produces semi-truck batteries and a
handful available at BJ's Wholesale. I would love to use Optima, however, the fitment for a Bimmer ends with the '77
2002. Any thoughts or suggestion?

Which have you had longer and in what vehicle?

The Duralast H8-DLG is actually what Autozone recommends. I was hoping for a better option though.

I would try to stay with OEM if possible you may even be able to get one of the new AGM style that we are putting in the e60 which has a much longer life and has better power output- same technology as a optima.
