Re: Which Optima battery...Yellow or Red?
No flames here but i did more research on those Pro-comp batteries and their relabled exide orbitals (even say exide right on the side [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]), as far as regular batteries, i had a 84 month top quality Motorcraft silver crap out after 1 year, Sears was accused of selling used Die-Hards as new 2 years back [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img], and my bro had worked as a Battery route person for local shops and it became obvious interstate and delcos with that fancy green window dont hold up well either.
Shilo your not the first person i have heard complain of optimas so im sure there have been some failures out there, which btw, what do so many people have against 4WPW, i bought my 1st item from them last week (a 9 dollar K&N filtercharger kit [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]) after i discovered they have a store 20 miles from me, anything i have ever needed mail-order i dealt with SummitRacing, is it their customer service or warranty policies???
My optima is now 3 years old which is the average life of a std. battery so i cant really comment yet on the expected double life that optima claims, but im not cleaning up any dirty corroded terminals or battery trays anymore. If it lasts at least 2 more, then i will say i got my moneys worth.
