    I bought the smaller of the two NAPA choices. Seems fine.

    For my '06 SEL estate fitted Bosch S5008 but not cheeep! Fits snugly into battery box 73 delivered inc VAT. My factory fitted battery (Moll) still turned over engine but was starting to lose charge from about two days after a long run.
    But an '09 shouldn't be showing battery probs yet. Dunno what's fitted over there though

    It depends on how long you intend to keep the car. If you intend to keep it another five years invest in a Alternate Glass Mat (AGM) battery. It will run close to $200.00. It will also hold a charge for over a year. Optima is a good brand of AGM batteries. These batteries never have to have the terminals cleaned. They can even work up-side-down.
