if you walk in to a shop, their prices will naturally be inclusive of installation = +$30 more than the selling price of the battery .

i usually just buy the battery $100 and then fix myself. 10 mins can save $30+ ... why not ??

If you want Amaron, can get it from the distributor itself.

www.namwah.com.sg

Else can go to Leong Seng, which is on the first floor of the same building as Namwah.

KB Lee is highly recommended in many forums. He goes around rescue people with dead batteries, but your battery not dead, can ask him also.

Provides onsite service and 1 year ON-SITE warranty for his Amaron Batteries. Can contact him to get a quote.

Might be cheaper than some shops, or might be $5 or $10 more expensive than the cheapest shop u can find... but you are paying for a little bit of convenience and his on-site warranty.

Read some good reviews abt him. He will help to test your alternator also.

So maybe u can contact him.

I changed mine with Guan Lee at Eunos Ave 5 who used a spare battery to retain my electronic settings while he replaced a new battery. The boss, a nice man, was the one who replaced my battery.
IIRC, I paid about $125 Amaron Hi Life 60AH 550 CCA 85D23L.

u can consider hoppecke or even bosch S5... for a 74Ah batt hoppecke would be abt $180 and bosch S5 at $220...

been using hoppecke for the last 3 batt but recently changed to bosch. heard that amaron quality has been dropping hence decided not to get it.
