Hmmmmm I think we have had this conversation before about the merits of your $400 BMW battery and my $60 impersonator.
Winter is fast approaching here in Oz, Beryl only just got going yesterday morning even after being on a battery charger a couple of nights previously......maybe the caffeine wasn't strong enough....more Red Bull......
Yes got Beryl's new pacemaker yesterday afternoon. Spoke to Dean at Alco batteries in Granville (9637 1544 and 4722 2588). Dominic who served me almost 3 years ago has now been seconded to head office, .....dunno if that is good or bad.
Dean quoted me $60 for an improved Ritar battery to what I had last. The previous one was a 12v 20amphour model, for $60. This new one is a 12v 22amphour version for what he said $60.
He also has 12v 18amphour units at around $35.
phhhhhhhhhhhhhhh such expense compared to Mr BMW.
ok, come off (wooops maybe change that terminology to "veer off") the M4 at the Parramatta exit, around the backwoods to Alco batteries, sorta showery weather ($#@% grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr).
Maybe Dean liked the talk, or the being a regular customer but sold me the 22amphour one for $50. Ha! how good is that, say three years use = $17/year. At $400 for a BMW version that equates to about 23.5 years worth........nahhhhhhhhhhhhh may not make that?????
At that cost, again I was tempted to buy a 2nd unit, dunno what for but hey at $50 each?? Dean still has a number is stock. Some other Alco places may have to order in.
Just about to get on Beryl to leave when this tall guy in a fluoro hi viz vest came up to me....Ha! well whatya know, it was my 2nd eldest son, who was working fitting out/clearing the warehouse building right next door. How strange....just as well the girlfriend was not on the back....you never know when someone will see you hahhahahahahahh
Hey Chris maybe I can do a deal here, you seem to like having too much money maybe I could sell you a 22amphour unit for hmmmmmmmm $200????
Did you want me to go back and get one for you?
