seen it before, kinda ricey... i know i wouldnt get one, just get the stock one polished with everything else under the hood, or get the battery relocated to the back with i personally think is the better choice.

The UNFORTUNATE part is that it must be used with a piece of shit Optima battery. The biggest JOKE of all batteries made IMO. I've gone through 4 of them in various vehicles and would never waste another penny on them. That "nice" warranty they are supposed to have is merely a "marketing" scheme. Avoid Optima like the plague! The bracket itself doesn't look toooo bad.

But for someone who's engine bay is completely polished it would look good. How is that anymore ricey then polishing anything else or having supra on your brake capipers etc. its just a label and isn't a HUGE sticker accross a windshield, not that is ricey. and it looks like a nice quality part as apposed to a cheap weak part. can someone post a pic of it installed.

It seems like its about 50/50 on this forum about peoples thoughts on optima.

hell yeah. its a hit or miss it seems. i have used them for many years on 10 different car and car audio spl monsters with no issues. but others have had bad vibes on the optima's :sadance:

I know, I'm just saying... anyways I apoligize if my posting this thread offended your anti-ricer sensabilities, lol. I just thought it looked cool. I'm goin with the all black look. I thought it was a high quality part that someone who was goin for the polished look would like.

I think it looks completely fine in the car. You have to freakin mount the battery bacwards though, or extend your cables.

My buddy cisco's engine bay.
