Recently there was some mention of under-the-seat batteries for the
5000/100 series Audis; I skimmed over the postings and then deleted
them. Well, mea culpa, this morning when I turned my ignition key, all
I got was a "chattering" from the starter. Methinks that my battery
('89 100Q) is retiring after 5 years of service. I managed to jump-start
the vehicle (there's SOME advantage to having a house on a hill!), but
am concerned about impending COLD weather. Can anyone point me to a
non-Audi (non-dealer) OEM-style battery with the built-in vent? Or
will I have to bite the bullet and get the obscenely-priced battery
from the dealer?
Any and all input invited, and thanks!
