Is Interstate the brand most recommended for replacement? It might be nice to list suitable replacements in that short summary. Any others?

Unfortunately for me, I have a DICE Silverline which constantly requires the "full reboot" procedure, which, in the E39, entails shorting out the + and - terminals in the car across the battery (according to Tom). That picture came from a DIY I wrote up for rebooting the DICE.
