Replacement Battery Info!!!!

I have 99 M3 cabrio (E36) that I need a new battery for. I've looked all over the web & can't find crap. Does anyone know what group size/amps I need and also is there anyone out there with 1st hand knowledge about what brand to buy? I don't want one from dealer (expensive).
Thanks for any help.

Worse case, the optima batteries have more then enough juice. I would just ask at the auto parts store.
