    I used "Autocraft H7-AGM" which looks identical. I paid about $150 after discounts, so 149.76 seems a fair deal. I've had no issues.

    I have Duralast platinum from Autozone. I have for 2.5 years and don't have any issues. I think I paid around $150 as well after all discounts.

    That's what batteries cost these days. Advance Auto & Autozone often have deals for percentage off if you purchase online & pick up at the store.

    Just coincidental that I bought my battery exactly a year ago today, and Pep Boys had a 35% off coupon at that time. And after I paid only $127, there was a $30 mail in rebate. Net was $97! Look for coupons for this year?

    Yup, this is the one I've put in both cars. Comes out to $150ish as well.

    I bought an H8-DLG when my old battery died in the ZHP. Worked great and had more cold crank amps than the stock battery.

    I have a NAPA thatís going on 8 years old. Iíll check the exact date when I get home but, itís only the second battery in my 2003. When it dies, Iíll replace it with the same.

    Contrary to what is recommended on Walmart site, I got the everstart Maxx H8. It's cheaper than the h7 and a better battery. And it fits just fine

    I used the Autocraft Platinum H7-AGM when I replaced mine in the ZHP last year.
    I just put the Autocraft Platinum H8-AGM in the E39 today.

    Supposedly AGM batteries don't need to be vented, which is a good thing because my ZHP doesn't have the venting hardware anymore. Plus they're supposed to last longer.
