    The Exide battery is a nice option. Here is the Rockauto link. Runs about $150.

    You can always get a few percent off by google searching for a rock auto promo code too. This usually negates the shipping charge.

    Note: this is the larger battery that fits in the larger battery tray used in the Touring model (and maybe other packages???)
