Yeah, I had a couple of lazy starts a week ago, but it's acting normal now. Probably stone dead soon. I've got a battery tender with a jump start function, so can hopefully get it going to go get a replacement, or I can just use the wife's car.

Anyone want to guess whose car is now dead in their garage? Is there a reason to change brands, or just run another VW battery?

Ha, I don't need a $600 battery for this thing.

Yeah, the price is a tough pill to swallow, but the way I'm justifying it for when I need one is 1. other Euro cars stock batteries can cost 2x+ (like BMWs), so $600 isn't out of the realm for a battery and 2. it's supposed to last much longer than a standard battery while providing good CCA and being a fraction of the weight.

Is it overkill for a station wagon? Yeah, but so are coilovers and Porsche Macan brakes. :p
