Hey there

Im in need of a new battery for mine to be soon XB falcon ute.

Now im after a battery that is going to be able to withstand and rather harsh beating lol. Its going to need to be able to power (in the future) a fairly high end sound system, carputer, and the err car lol.

Any recco's prices and retailers would be greatly appreciated.

If you were going to be running anything decent, and dont mind the price, id go for the yellow top as well. But i couldnt see myself needing it, so i just got myself a 525 Yuasa. From memory, theyre the same as a Century, and we had one in our diesel patrol for ages (like 6 years) and it was still going strong. We only replaced it in case we had troubles on our trip over to the east.

Yea im pretty happy, its for free as well. The only problem is getting it from its current location (300km+) away to here in sydney, with it being unregisted. It looks like it wont be comming for a fair while because i have to organise a pink slip and head to the rta to get a permit...
