I never had any luck with Crappytire batteries...
Then again last time I checked on my car it had 1" of dust on it, 3 flat tires & most definatly a dead battery. It is a dead dry cell if that means anything.

I was in Canadian tire today and those crappy batteries are like $140 for my car, no thanks.

I'll order from dealer on Monday.

I paid $130 for an Interstate battery on the E36. What's the dealer selling them for?

+1 for total battery, I had one in my e30 without problems, and my dad has one in his Z3. Great price and great service. If my OE battery ever dies, that's where I'll be going.

The one that was in my car is from Total Battery I believe (Trans Canada? something like that), I looked at the invoices it was bought it 2004.

I'll give them a call tomorrow and see how much they sell for.

It's either in shit shape that they couldn't take pictures, or they are 80 yearsold that they can't snap a picture of their car to put it up on the ad.
