where to buy a battery

I have a A4 1.8, I went to autozone to buy the battery but none of them fit perfectly. Is there any solution to fit the smaller size in side the a4 battery slot. I don't want to spend $155.00 with the dealer's battery.

Take a look at the manufacturer sites - and their retail associates - on the web. Usually you can find Make/Model/Year/Engine selector guides for their products.
That said, here's the first example I came across...
Diehard International Mfr. model #33348 Sears item #02833348000 USD109
save you a few bucks, anyway...

I've had excellent luck in recent years with Interstate and AC Delco's pro batteries. Not the Delco's you find at Kmart, AutoZone and such, but the ones from real parts shops. Check your local yellow pages.
They'll cost more, but after having 2 of the AutoZone cheap as you can make 'em batteries dump acid in my engine compartment, I won't touch 'em anymore. (and no, the charging system and all were fine. 'twas due to cases and seals that failed)

Make sure they know how to change the battery too, or it could be a trip to the dealer to have the throttle adaptation reset, $$$, be warned,

Assuming it's at least a B5 model, throttle adaptation can be accomplished by the driver using the ignition key (turn to run position, wait three minutes before starting).
I'd be more concerned with the radio dropping into SAFE mode and (1) not knowing the unlock code and/or (2) having used up the limited number of unlock cycles (iirc the Symphony-II was only good for 5 unlock cycles before it was done for good)...

Are you serious? That is ridiculous!
I've got symphony I and had to unlock it several times, but can't remember if it's been more than 5...
Cheers,
Pete

Thankfully, I haven't quite tested the veracity of the claim - I'm up to 3 unlock cycles in 5 years - but as I recall, when I stumbled across it I had the same reaction. And if I need the 6th cycle I'm sure there'll be some choice words heard ;-)

I susoect/hope that there is some misunderstanding here. Many radios implement an ever increasing delay between unlock attempts - so it might allow five before forcing you to wait an hour before trying again, then two hours etc...

Peter, Yep, I think you're right , in that it's not the number of correct unlocking cycles, but the number of incorrect entries in a row - you have 5 chances to enter the right code. Cheers!
