either way i was gonna put a bigger battery in my car...but now before finals i'd really like to have one put in. i just got a stock one for now but can anyone lend/sell/trade me a good battery for finals??? (most likely a red or yellow top) i gotta fit it into a '98 VW Golf - there is a fair bit of room, or we could make some.
i'll take any suggestion that i can get and i'm kinda in the market right now, but i'm pretty unsavvy when it comes to the battery scene. [img]graemlins/dunno.gif[/img]
HELP ASAP!!!

ok, yeah, i know now my best bet will be a yellow top (or blue depending on post location) but where do i get the best price!?!

i've heard a lot of diffent suggestions but $$$ is really an important factor when you gotta save for the finals trip alone...

Priceclub has had the best prices that I've seen so far.

If there isn't one near you then you could also try
