yup … just horrible juju with batteries despite the cteks
the state of charge is good until the cliff one day without warning
2yr 2yr 4.5yr … so maybe the 5th battery will last 6.5yr
so sort of a fibonacci progression for me
So either a BCI group H7 or 94R will fit the 2014/2015 CLA?

Hi Mav,
Be careful here - found out that during MY2014 they installed two different main batteries in production. Some were H6, others H7. The H7 is 1 inch longer. If yours was H7 you can use either but if H6 the H7 won't fit into the bracket.

I was pretty lucky my original battery lasted 8 years, it's sleeps outside (no garage) and we have brutally cold winters. You never can tell.
Thanks, for the headsup. Appreciate the thoughtful advice.
