Bosch S5 096 will do you well.
Make sure you look for discount codes. CP15LESS on Car Parts for Less.

I learnt the hard way that justcarbatteries don't honour the 5 year warranty. They send you to Bosch. Bosch send you back to the retailer. ECP and CP4L do a swap straight away, so although more expensive they get my business these days. (They also have a load of branches so it's easier to take a battery back to them).

Costco retail Bosch batteries and their return policy is second to none.

Just bought OEM-equivalent Varta BMW battery from Tayna. Very good and cheap. Not sure what correct number for 993 is. AA bloke recommended Varta (have Bosch in 993). https://www.tayna.co.uk/
