Anyone know a good price on those? My Battery is fading and I'm going to need a new one soon.

i just went out and bought an orange top at Batteries Plus for $160. Noone seems to sell the post position for the supra (at least locally) except Batteries Plus. The blue top was $199. Pep Boys sells the red top for $109 and $119 but you'll have to cross the cables or extend it.

Only the orange top has the correct non-reversed post configuration for the supra. The blue/yellow tops will be reversed. Fine if your battery terminals are long enogh.

So what is the correct Optima battery to buy with reversed terminals if i want a deep cycle battery (yellow top)? The orange is the same as red with reversed terminals. So which is the one for the yellow top?

There's a misconception that the tops signify deep cycle which isn't true.. deep cycle optimas have light gray bottoms. Now, all yellow tops happen to be deep cycle, but blue Optimas come in light grey (deep cycle) and dark gray (cranking). I've only seen red in dark grey.

Sorry i think im just going to buy new, but thanks for the offer.

So the general price for the blue top is $199 ?? or does anyone know anywhere better. I like the blue top because I've been told you can use the extra posts for your stereo and so forth. Anyone using the blue top in their engine bay?
