Talking Just got an Optima

well i just went out and bought a Optima batterie today, man what a difference
my car starts right away now and my alarm LED's are so much brighter and flash alot faster i was driving by in Richmond and saw a store with the Optima so i went in and it turns out they are the wholesellers of Optima in Vancouver so they sell it for a bit less then Costco and they said if we can get a G/B going they can drop the price a bit more. just some info for whoever wants to set one up too bad i found out about this after i payed for it

oops. the name of it is Federal Battery 11560 Voyageur Way phone number is 604-276-2327 they have the full line of Optima so depends on what your looking yellow or red tops have different price and also what size you need is another price too so best bet is to call or go down and talk to them

I just got my redtop optima yesterday too, I dunno how much you got it for but I got mine for $131.34 before taxes and battery levy. It's the proper Group 35 for our cars (not the 35/75 kind). Another choice for optima batteries for those who doesn't want to go to Richmond:

East Penn Power Battery
7954 Winston Street 107A, Burnaby, BC V5A2H5
(604) 420-0757
