I need good battery for all year cold winter even. In my country someday in winter is -20C. Can You recommend something to my car? Thank You very much.

I would get the highest rated CCA in the group sizes 75 78 or 34 you can find since its so cold where you live. I can't really recommend a certain battery because I live in the us and if I tell you a battery to get it probably won't be available there.

Yes it's cold here but only about 2-3 months in the year. I found here optima batteries. I think about 50AH 815 CCA. What do You think about it? It will fit to this car and alternator? Thank You.

That's not the number I see for any of the red top optimas for that car. But if it says it will fit your car then nothing wrong with that. That is plenty of CCAs to start your car. Those optimas are really good battery's.
