If you only drive on roads, and don't abuse your battery with short trips that won't recharge more than consumed starting the car and live in a warmer climate you can make a strong case for liquid electrolyte
Unfortunately TJ (the OP) is in Australia...so he doesn't have the same sources as us here in the States.

My only tip is...if the battery is installed below the cargo floor...DON'T FORGET TO VENT THE BATTERY. Hopefully you still have the gray tube and the little black elbow in the existing battery to hook up your replacement battery to.

You can see the gray vent tube and the little black connecting elbow on the left side of the battery in the pic below of my replacement battery and the original BMW battery:
