All of these attitudes are pretty clear in Jerome's posts.
You sound like a commie

Just replaced my battery due to slow starts and it going flat overnight during a cold spell as well. Car fires up like a champ now. Few things I noticed from this car as well as others:

- Keep an eye for slower starts in the morning even after charging
- especially on this car, I noticed my footwells and trunk lights didn't switch on first thing in the morning unless I started the car, or even after leaving the car parked at the train station for 8 hours while at work. The interior lights also appeared to dim faster than usual.

after replacing the battery both symptoms went away. Oh and I went with an OEM battery. Make sure you write down the part number because the parts counter gave me the wrong battery the first time around (smaller one) if you don't carry the old one in.
