Possibly yes, as long as it fires up the car.

MINI cooper size battery is the smallest battery I would go. Unless its a track car, these batteries don't have any margin for reserve capacity.

Mini is good to but not this light, its only 10 pounds lighter than OEM. With this you wont have to worry if you drive it once a week or so. If you dont drive the car once a week you can hook up a battery tender so it doesnt die.

Sure, not for alot of people. With oem or whatever you wont have to worry about anything. Just make sure you drive the car once a week with this and it should fire right up. Offcourse no iced out stuff.

In that case it really is not for you. Or you can put a battery tender on and your Golden
