Dealer? I bought mine from local dealer, just as cheap as anywhere else plus guaranteed to be the correct one.

For my SL500 I paid £95 delivered but I believe the batteries are now £125 delivered both from MB Grangemouth, I guess with you living on an island its going to be more expensive.

It's always these prices here....

I have seen the following online;

Mercedes SL Car Battery 35ah 540cca 230 541 00 01 | ABS Batteries

That isn't much of a battery to turn over a 55k engine:(
Ideally you need this one with 95Ah and 850CCA
Varta G14 AGM Stop Start Car Battery (595901085) (019) | ABS Batteries
Or this one
Bosch S5013 Car Battery (600 402 083) (019) | ABS Batteries

I got this one sometime back, just replaced under guarantee and its not really powerful enough.
Bosch S5008 Car Battery (577 400 078) (096) | ABS Batteries

Whatever you choose could be more expensive, with shipping, than getting one from your dealer.

You should be able to get it aftermarket for $140 or so. I got a genuine battery through an aftermarket source but i believe that they're all made by Varta

The battery mentioned is the precise battery provided when stock!

Varta was the first place I went to but they don't have it here.
