I would, if there is sme proof of age and such. Im not going to spend 200$ on a battery. I might just pick up top of the line one from CT for truck use.

^^ Ditto same here, alot cheaper then one from the dealer. Total came to $152 with tax here. And if you want a yellow top, it's more expensive then the red as it's a deep cycle batt...

if you wanted to be cheap you should have bought a neon. Buy the yellow top. I have one and it's been really good. What's a couple hundred bucks? I'd rather spend a little more and be happy with the results.

If you don't have a huge audio system and all you want a battery for is starting the car, the Red Top is the better choice.

I have a stock audio system.. the Yellow Top would be useless for me.

it's a deep cycle battery meaning you can drain it down completely without harm. Even red tops, if totally discharged, can de damaged. Like I said above, what's a little extra$$$$. This is for a BMW, not a Gremlin.
