Need a new battery.

Hey everyone! I'll be needing a new battery soon and wanted to get some opinions. I know there are a bunch of threads on getting 49DL, i also noticed that some of the m3 guys are using mini cooper batteries. Would a mini cooper battery fit in my 328i and if so could I use this? http://www.walmart.com/ip/EverStart-...ttery/20531541 (i believe it fits the mini cooper) It only has 650cca but i believe that is also what the stock battery has.

I may end up going with a bosch battery but i just want to see if this is an option.

Thanks

Here's a better option - how about the using the correct one? The H7s and H8s are a perfect fit (unless it's a convertible then the H8 is out) and has the recommended CCA. You're in CT where the CCA will come in handy. Someone just recently started a thread on a weak-cranking Cooper battery that he just got. I say skip the hassle.

In a million-dollar F1 where every lb matters it would make sense. On our cars I'm sure the extra weight will go unnoticed.

I got a Bosch from pepboys. After $20 off coupon and rebate, it was less than $100 IIRC.
