Personally I'd go for a cheaper one with a 3-4yr warranty. If you get 4yrs out of a battery that cost £60 that's not bad, plus I wouldn't be trusting the integrity of any battery beyond 4yrs.

Having said that I've just got 14yrs out of the original Varta battery on my Audi Surprised A Varta Audi battery did not go back on Embarassed

Don't buy a "Porsche" original as cheaper alternatives are usually better. Thumb

Bosch S5. Checkout GT4's post on this topic in the 996 FAQ.
Go for the strongest Cold Cranking Amps (CCA) not just the correct Amperage.
