Re: New Battery... any recommendations

Actually with the positive terminal on the left side there are only a few choices and should be easy to spot in the lineup.

Re: Fitting empi front step

Held on with the bolt that goes through the side support arm and the outer ends of your bumpers. The top of the empi step presses on the underside of the dogleg like a lever.

Re: Max size battery dimension to fit in the battery tray area?

The later models have newer gauges, 3rd brake light and possibly ABS and airbag on steering wheel. Aircon makes a difference to prices as well. All stuff ...
