    Maybe you have the money to replace perfectly good batteries every year. I don't. The battery has been tested and is fine. And even if I had a bad battery I could jump start the car. The problem is...

    Mine seems to be more of a bluish color than black. I am not sure if it is intentional or wear. I like it though so it isn't a bid deal to me. I could see how it is a big deal if you don't like it....

    If you do not know the torque, or it isn't called out in the instructions/manual you have, use a standard torque.
