Who do you think makes and distributes the white MB batteries? The answer is Interstate, but you and I can't buy them direct. We have to go to the dealer. This isn't some article I read somewhere; I've seen them setting on pallats at the Interstate distribution center.
If you paid $60.00, you got what you paid for. You say you just put it in. Talk to me a year or so down the road. Generally every thing of good quality costs extra to manufacture well, so it is priced accordingly. Ever give a thought to why a Mercedes costs more than a Ford or Chevy?
