Finally the old battery can be taken anywhere for credit that further reduces price vs local.

One word of caution wrestling the super heavy battery is a beast and the odd cabling connections and number of cables doesn't make it any easier

Even if you use the very same battery size/type/etc. - you should still go thru the 'Battery Registration' process to tell the car a new/fresh battery has been installed so that it charges appropriately - which still entails using a cable & software (or paying the dealer to do it )
