2003 996 Porsche Battery

Engine

Vehicle Information: Year: 2003; Body Type: Cabriolet; Total Mileage: 1800;

This weekend my car died in the garage. I called Porsche Roadside Assistance and they came out and before towing on a flat bed the guy brought over a portable battery pack and started it right up. (My 6 cylinder Toyota Tacoma could not generate the power to do that), Anyway, I went to the PCA Potomac Picnic in MD, entered the car into the concours, etc, ,and at the end the car wouldnt start and we tried and tried. Finally one of the guys got it going.HBL Porsche of Tysons offered me the choice between a new Porsche Battery and an Interstate Battery. They said the Interstate Battery was better but I really can't tell and I need your help. I took the Interstate Battery and installed it. Did I do the right thing? I guess the winter killed the original battery for some reason. I hope HBL Porsche didnt steer me wrong with a non-Porsche Product. Your advice Sir?? Thanks
