A word of caution when youíre removing those metal plates make sure the red cap is still covering the positive terminal. A buddy of mine tried to earth weld the metal plate to his car

Thanks for this thread. Battery confirmed DOA at Autozone today.

Looks like H8 retails at $199 at Pepboys around Dallas, TX. Web only promotion is 25% off, down to $149. Sounds great but anyone let me know if Iím missing a better deal.

Also for anyone who bought a battery at PepBoys already, recently enough ...

They typically (always?) also have a rebate going on. It does combine with the 25% (or 35% on black friday) price discount. As usual it is currently $40. PepBoys also gives you the tax back, so if you're in a place like Taxifornia, you'll get $44 back.

https://pepboysrebates.rewardpromo.c...current-offers

And I checked, and they do have the $40 on Champion AGMs through 2/22.

You can do the rebate online, just entering the transaction number on the receipt. Very easy and reliable. No, I don't work for PepBoys.

I've currently got 3x of those Champion AGMs in my Porsches and BMW, all of them with the discount + the rebate.

I think on one of those 3 I bought, they did not have the 25% or 35% off in-store. I should have ordered it online for store pickup to get the discount, but they gave it to me anyway. Select the option to pay in store, and it is basically a reservation rather than an order. So you can for example bring in your core for a swap and it will be easier.

Thanks for the tip on the rebate I had bought 2 Bosch batteries from them in the past whenever there's a 25% off, but never knew there's a rebate for them as it's very hidden. I'll need to get one for the X probably by the end of the year and will definitely look for the rebate then.

Got this at Pepboys store last night $162 taxes included. Just submitted $50 rebate. Total should end up at $112. While in the store found out Pepboys is closing stores at least in Texas, which explains aggressive discount. I guess I should not expect warranty on it, but for that cheap I take my chance.
