E46 Battery

So my venerable original battery is starting to show signs of dying, finally after near 12 years!

Do you guys have any recommendations on replacement battery? The car is old now and don't know how long I'll keep it, so try to keep below $200 including shipping. Thanks

I'm running an Exide Passenger Endurance. I was going to get a Varta, but free shipping is too good.

In a warm climate, I've found that the Worst/Crappiest/Smallest battery works just fine.

I ran a Sears DieHard Gold Lawn & Garden (U1) battery in my Bimmer at one point to save weight, in a warm climate it worked perfectly.


EDIT: 15 lbs / 6.81 kg

I just found my car model on everybattery.com.au. Free shipping was a promotion I think not available any more.
