    No diehard platinum in canada!!

    I went to pick one up from sears, and they had never even heard of a diehard platinum! Sears doesn't carry the platinums in canada. The dude tried to sell me a diehard gold, and he's telling me its the best diehard battery. For the lack of any better options, I picked up a yellow top optima for $180. What do you guys usually pay for a decent battery?

    If buying new XS is usually the way to go in which case you can get a nice battery for around $250 from them. I buy used batts though cause I'm a cheap ass, and can get them for around $50 local. They aren't anywhere near as nice as an XS or anything, but it gets the job done

    **** a yellow for a buck 80, not bad seeing as mine cost me almost 250! Also I like the warranty yellow tops come with and have yet to see one as good.

    heck for that price I would snag two, then wait for the sale to end and sell it for 250! 70.00 in profit then yours would only be 110.00!
