The 330 Ci takes a (BCI Group) 94r battery. No one in Canada seems to sell these. I tried Wallmart, Costco, Canada Tire, Napa, etc. I called Partsource and they had a 94r in stock but wanted $199 for it. The guy on the phone said not to worry, that my car will take a (BCI Group) 48 for $114.
I take the battery out and head down to the store. The 48 is almost 2-3 inches longer than the 94r (so no way). They load tested my battery and it was dead. So I gave them the $199 -$10 core and $10 off coupon (http://www.redflagdeals.com/forums/s...ght=partsource
The Partsource battery was an White Excide 94r, so it is now basically the OEM replacement, now that Douglas Battery is no more. The single vent tube for the battery hooked up no problem, and everything lined up as the original battery.
I would have liked to of installed an Optima Yellow top from Costco for $156 (great deal), but there is no cross top bracket on my battery install, only the bottom mount secure bracket. No real way to hold the battery in place.
