So the old dame was getting hard to start, needed a boost a couple of times, and was throwing up some 'low voltage' errors. I decided to replace the battery as I had no idea how old it was. Removed the existing battery and the only thing that looks like a date on it was "021106". Could this still be the original battery from 2006? I usually plan for 5 years out of a battery.

The battery code is F1B6901130035. One Russian decode site does appear to agree that it was made year 2006. '690' being 2006 month "90" which appears to be October.

Looks like the original type, hope you replaced with a large one. They can have a long life if charged often. I think this is 95Ah / 950CCA ? (That was my original Varta in a 2010 3-0 Hdi). Quite powerful.

Yes, I replaced it with a similar large Varta:
Manufacturer ‎Varta
Model ‎6004020833162
Product Dimensions ‎35.3 x 17.5 x 19 cm;
Manufacturer part number ‎6004020833162
OEM Part Number ‎600 402 083
Position ‎Left
Amperage ‎100 Amps

We shall see if this one lasts for 16 years
