Feedback on mercedespartssuperstore.com

My r171's (2005 SLK 350) battery died after 11 years. Since 11 years is a very long time, I am inclined to buy a genuine OEM battery. This website has the best price (here on mercedespartssuperstore.com http://mercedespartssuperstore.com/p...&siteid=217866). Did any of you buy from this website recently? Are there other options?

If you have done service with mb dealer within 18 months and spent at least $100, labor to install is free, battery around $160

walmart and pepboys sell the battery you seek also

Thank you! I did not know that. The last time I checked, they quoted me $127 labor.Let me ask again (since I had a service done less than a year ago).

$127 labour to fit a battery?! OUCH! You guys in the States must have some wealthy garage owners!

A car battery is a car battery, don't be misled by the MB logo

Buy a quality brand specifically for your car model, but no need to go through your dealer

It really is a simple job to do yourself, $127 to fit a battery is outrageous IMO.

Plenty of advice on here on what to do once you have changed it too
