I didn't. I even posted picture of the Lead-Calcium unit I bought above
The first picture is an AGM so guess you mean the one in the next pictures. VW don't make batteries so not sure of the advantages of a VW OEM which is a Varta with a VW sticker on it unless the price is less.

The first pic was the aftermarket option example. The comparison pic was what went in. As per my post, I wanted the BEM coding, and if you read about the various battery technologies, it appears that the OEM option has a good reputation/track record.

I also have more faith in a German made unit vs some China crap or bargain N/A unit.
The standard fitment in Europe is an 020 AGM. I assume in Canada a Lead Calcium is required as there isn't any stop/start :unsure: You're right fit the best, peace of mind alone makes it worth it.
