I thought physically they were the same size, but the internals are different giving the hgiher capicity and that.

The D34, is slightly larger. However Optima have just released the D75, which is exactly the same size, and specifically suits Falcons. The D35, is also a new product, which fits straight into a Commodore.

Official Australian RRP on Optima Batteries.

D51 - $295 inc.
D35 - $330 inc.
D75 - $330 inc.
D34 - $385 inc.
D31 - $440 inc.

I didn't know that LG - cheers for the information mate :)

Back when I bought mine, it was one size fits all unfortunately - good to see they're accommodating for the masses now.

LG ... thanks for that information man.
I am looking into a better battery soon-ish ... with the onset of new stereo (over the current stock system) ... and needing a decent battery for starting an LPG vehicle ... I think it is a necessity.
