Pep Boys - Bosch Battery Group 49

I just replaced my 4-year old Wally EverStart Group 49 ($63 back in 12/08) after it failed to start the E39 a couple weeks back (car sat idle for 4-5 days in near freezing temp). Although a charger brought the battery back to life, it was time to get a new one.

Pep Boys has a Bosch 49-850 with a 3yr replacement (plus roadside assistance jump start) for $109, minus a $25 coupon (via online - Google) and $20 rebate. Thus, $64 plus tax.

The EverStart and Bosch appear to be made by the same mfr given that the batteries' specs (850 CCA) and exterior details were identical.
