Advice needed - 156 1.9 JTDM Thermostat. Vernet, Facet, Behr?

Hi all,
I am pretty sure my thermostat is faulty (low temps). I have checked several sites online and found:
-Car Parts 4 Less: Vernet - 44
-Shop 4 Parts: Facet - 87
-Alfa Workshop: Behr - 90
-Alfa Workshop: Genuine Alfa - 84
It's always tempting to buy the cheapest one as it's half the price of the others but will the Vernet be a thermostat of the type "buy cheap but twice"? I've seen some mixed comments from other forums when Googling it...Any suggestions will be much appreciated!
Many thanks

Renault 5 thermostat - 10 quid. I'm using one and it works flawlessly *knocks on wood*
But seriously, I've heard Behr is the best option.

When Googling it, I've read good comments about Behr's thermostats as well. Thanks for that!

Check the plug from the temp sender is correct. Some have 2 wires some have 4.
