LV I can certainly recommend the Century 75D23L. We have that battery fitted in the 2004 that lives above the snow line at Mt Buller from now until September. Starts every time

I know, they moved production to Mexico and the quality also went South so to speak.
I have read somewhere on the net lately that they have got the quality back into their product, but have not read of any other affirmations.
