The VT is due for a new battery, and Im wondering what brand shouldI be getting or staying away from?

I have a Bosch in the VK and it just continues to impress me, so Im thinking Bosch, but want to hear what other people have used.

I have a budget of around 200 bux, but I dont want to buy anything I dont need. Its a daily driver doing around a 1000km a week, car is 100% stock in the electrical side, no fancy stereo or anything to run.

My place is a graveyard of exide and century batteries, all relatively early deaths. Got ten years out of a supercharge, and the acdelcos Ive purchased recently seem very good value for money.
Some say they all the same, come out of the same factory ....yadayada.......just citing what Ive experienced.

Had an AC Delco sealed battery in the SS for over 2 years so far and never missed a beat, also really great price compared to other brands.

VZ GTO. VS LS1.
Super Charge Gold 650cca FTW. Also I'll agree that the AC Delcos are quite good value for money, as long as they are only running standard electrical systems, i.e they dont hold up well to the draw from extras like an amp.

delco or supercharge gold, the supercharge has a 3 year warranty which is good piece of mind

All right so Im kinda leanign towards, AC Delco, SuperCharge, or Bosch.
I did have AC Delco in mind aswell, as I try to use there products where I can, though Bosch has been very good to.
I had a supercharge battery, I didnt find it to be that great and has since been retired for a prawning battery and the prawning battery installed in the VN lol. Ill look into them though. Keeps the opinions/reviews coming cause Im not buying one till next week.
