You will need to change all the fluids  and filters to include the brake fluid.  I prefer Interstate batteries over all the others to include the red tops.

We have a battery here in the United States that is advertised to be the best battery on the Market.  It has a red top, so we refer to it as the red top.  You can most likely get a decent battery in Slovakia that will work just fine.

I don't know about Slovakia but red top optima batteries are sold in some European countries:

That may be true Thierry, but the talk is that they are no better than the rest of the good batteries like Interstate.  It just depends on the warranty I suppose.  I have used Interstate batteries for many years now without a hitch.  The bottom line is that the more you pay for a battery, and the greater the cold cranking amps are, the better the battery.

Yes I understood what you meant but all I know is that red top batteries are a popular choice in Europe and I don't think they can find Interstate or other good US batteries. From where we are, it's difficult to recommend a good brand for Masterblaster. ;)

I'm sure if you don't have a "red-top" your country has something that is close to its quality.

That's what I was trying to say Mustang98.  Batteries are made all over the world, and the Optima is not the best of the best.  If you can't get it, then get the best you can in your country.

Your Mustang seems to be like new. Is it the original mileage?

Yes, it is original mileage. I am second owner. First was my old uncle. I was inherited from him. (God bless him) And it rode very shortly
