Damn this cold weather, time for a battery

Well, it appears that time and the resent cold temps have had their way with my battery. First my heater motor decided not to run on high and then I got an error message indicating "Increased battery drain". After that, my clock needed to be reset every time I start the car. It's a 2008 with the original battery so I guess it is time for a new battery. Six years is longer than the usual anyway. I have a quote of 280.00 for a new battery and coding. Sounds fair to me.

If that's a quote from a dealership, that's the lowest I have ever seen

Not a dealership, it is from Imola Motorsports in Minneapolis. They service everything from Lambos to anything German. They do absolutely great work and I would recommend them for any type of service. It is also a good time to be able to look at the vehicles they have in for service. Lot's of high end stuff.
