Just curious... i was thinking about getting the Yellow Top D35 battery from Optima and i saw on AutoZone that you needed a tray to support it.. haven't seen anyone say that anywhere else on different sites ive been looking at.

Just curious how many people on here have that battery in their 3 and if they have put a tray in there also.

Thanks for any input on this.

It comes with the battery, just clip it onto the bottom of it to raise the height of it a bit so the hold down will fit snug against the battery.

ive got the red top in mine and the fitment is just fine, mine came with the heighth adapter and it fit snug! i love the fact that i can sit at the lake with ma gurl and not have to turn it on every 30 minutes to let it charge!

Pretty expensive, but they look nice. I'd consider it if I was going to replace the battery box alltogether, or go for a trunk-mounted battery.

The optima yellow top fit without any issue in my '04.

The cables were a bit tighter, as the contacts are on the opposite side of the battery, but it worked without any issue.
