Good Battery for X2

Guys,

I've got a 2011 X2. Bought it new and have not replaced the batteries yet. It's time. What do you guys recommend. Links to websites so I can see would be awesome.

Thanks!

Trent

Depends on what's important to you and how/where they are mounted. I have Blue Tops and they've worked out well for me. Certianly not the cheapest option.

If you go with lead/acid I've heard Interstate makes a great battery for the money.

Blue tops are awesome. I just replaced the last ones after 7 years.

Thanks for the replies...blue tops are pretty expensive, but if they last that long, probably worth it. I see a few choices on their website, what's the right model?

So you think I've got 2 more years on the batteries? I've got 3 amps hooked to it, including a 500W 1 channel for a JL 12". But I rarely play them with the engine off and I have a battery switch I use religiously when the boat is on the lift/in storage.
