Default A4 2004 1.8T OEM Battery needs replacement

The battery on my A4 2004 with 59K miles has stopped holding charge. It's showing 235 cck when the Firestone guy checked it. (Audi dealership told me the same thing that it needs to be replaced).
The car/battery was running fine before it discharged because i left a interior driver side light on over the long weekend.

Any suggestion on choosing from following 3 options will be greatly appreciatedSorry but i can not self install)

1)Non-OEM replacement Interstate MTP-91 at Firestone app $130 out of door cost.(30 mos replacement, 85 month warranty)
2)Non-OEM replacement Die Hard Model# 33348 at Sears app $ 150 out of door cost (36 month replacement, 72 month warranty)
3)Least preferred- OEM replacement is costing me $ 270 out of door (1 year replacement, 4 year warranty)

Thanks in advance for help.

Thanks..The Audi dealer installed a new one for $170. I thought its worth as when i went to Sears with some additional fees/taxes it came up to be around $160.
