Pricing of Bosch batteries with 3/5 yr guarantees

Considering a preemptive strike to replace my 6 year old car battery.

Bosch battery with 3 years guarantee for 50
Bosch battery with 5 years guarantee for 100

Both the same size and Ah rating, so why should I buy the 5 yr battery? If the 5 yr battery was 80 it would be cheaper per year of guarantee, but not at 100.

I can get 25% off those prices, so for 40 I should avoid any inconvenience and embarrassing calls to the recovery service.

Pricing just seemed a bit wrong to me.

my local car guy said there too many variables with car battery life, so recently I just replaced my 6 year old battery with a similar one to my old OEM battery for 70 with 4 year warranty

Yep, very true. I've just reserved a Bosch with 4 yr guarantee for 65. Seems to meet the OEM spec, so good enough I'm sure.

According to one weather forecast it's set to -7C tomorrow evening. So it will be nice to get it installed before then.

at least your car works, my fuel pump OR pump relay is gone after I gave it a new battery

so be aware of any electrical issues they may arise in the coming chill
