Not sure exactly which model it was, but I got an Interstate battery for a '03 GS430 a couple months back for ~$115 I believe, from Costco. It was the one recommended for that car according to the Interstate "battery book". Might want to check there if you have a membership.

Thanks for the tip but Costco in Canada still sells Kirkland. Cehecked there yesterday and their price for the 24 series was $90. Problem is the measurements are off quite a bit which means it won't fit properly in the factory box. I am going to take the box with me when I go shopping and make sure I get hte exact right size.

Did anyone end up finding a Kirkland battery that is the correct dimensions? The group 24 battery is longer than the OEM battery in our 2011 GS350, in addition, the 24 is reverse polarity.

For anyone that has removed the battery box or cage, is it riveted on or just screwed on, can't really see the connectors without removing everything.

I did find a battery that fit at Costco just fine. It was one of their Kirkland series. I did not take the full battery box out, just the surround that goes around the outside of the battery. It made testing for fit and size real easy. SKU is 342242 KS
