Which of these batteries should I use? My car is dead everymorning, and everytime I stop, so I figure it's time for a new battery.
Which is better?

Well, all I know is that if you have a convertible, use OEM, if not, you're open to whatever you like. Hell, I use a 17amp dry cell motorcycle battery, I've never had the car not start, even in sub-0 weather. :)

convertible?... then you can't use a regular e36 battery. you need a battery with a higher vibration tolerance as battery as your battery is on a movable tray. look for an oem / douglas battery.
