Just wanted to post an update.
Went to RMP Motors this afternoon, new battery now installed and registered.. took about a half hour at most.
Everything seems to have improved..
The vents weren't blowing as strong recently, and the new battery fixed that.
It might be my imagination, but the heated seats seem to warm up much faster now too.
I had slow cranks in the cold mornings.. they are now resolved.
All in all, I'm very happy about getting rid of the 2006's OEM battery.
