OEM battery was a group 24 but most people use group 34 now?

Is that the consensus?

Thanks

The post are reversed on the 34 which puts the terminals up against the fender. Stick with the 24.

I replaced the neardead 24 my spider had when purchased with a 34. In both cases, the top terminals were situated away from the fender, and the negative post was towards the back of the car -- I didn't need to mess around with too short cables, etc. I went the Optima route mostly because I had a bad experience once with a leaking lead acid battery (not that there is ever a good experience with a leaking battery). I don't know what group battery the 91 spider originally came with from Milan, but 34 was way easier to find when it was replacement time.
