That's fine but the answer why not is right in my post. There is NOT reason to put one in, when far better options exist at the same price point.

Lots of folks suggest something because its different, doesnt mean it is the right/best choice!

I think I'll go with a Sears DieHard Advanced Gold AGM Battery - Group 49 for $143.99 / plus tax this time around.
It shows an application online for the CDI as Model #50749 | Sears Item # 02850749000 an 850 CCA G49.
Full replacement for 36 months.

The MB dealer is quite a bit further than my nearest Sears Automotive Center.

The MB 'white' AGM battery replacement for the CDI is MBCA member priced @ $202.00 plus tax, as an FYI.
As an FYI; the pricing of the Sears DieHard battery is available only if you prepay for the battery online/over the 800 line from Sears, BEFORE going to pick it up from your Sears Automotive Center. The savings is; $36.00 over the price on the floor. Remember, the store clerk cannot sell it for $143.99 + tax - it must be done over the Net/800-line direct.

I picked it up Monday to install at my home garage.

Well, just as a heads-up, the sale @ Sears Automotive Centers has ended, and the Internet prepaid price is back up to $170.99, a savings of $9.00 over the over-the-counter floor price of $179.99.

Ive seen the Bosch AGM G49 for $159.99 online only, with a 15% coupon at pep boys. Advance auto also has a G49 AGM for around $189, but they often have 40% off and $50 off $125 coupons.

Varta makes Mercedes OEM batteries, and is another Johnson Controls brand. Same is true of Optima. I think most of the US brands are actually made by JC, in China.
