Default optima yellows

So I was browsing craigslist and found some yellow tops for $100 ea they are the d31t's. Guy bought 5 to use for a project in his house but only used one.. so ? Is $100 a legit price for one but see if he will take less if I take all?

What I was thinking. He said they are only about 6 months old and his bro is out at A school and wanted some cash when he got out. So guess I'll try a lil cheaper so maybe he will be like ok they out of my hair lol

Ebay??!!! Heck in store(Auto parts stores) their about that around me. They have gone up in price over the years.

Just a warning tho. Not sure if it applies to the Yellowtops, (Redtops after 2011 things went downhill) but Optima isn't as good as they used to be. Unless someone can chime in and prove me wrong. Just going by what other folks have said on here.

dunno.. that was just a lazy search.

if you have an Advance Auto, you can buy it online using the P20 code and get a group31 yellow top for $212 total picked up at your local store. {that's my local price}

Sonic is correct. Or just order online for store pickup and recieve 20% off... we usually run a battery special around the holidays so may be cheaper soon
