GTV/Spider replacement laternator adivice please

Hi just taken the alternator off my X reg Spider 2.0L i have looked on ebay and they are £85 free delivery (to cheap to be true) i have rung the dealer and yes its the correct one and no exchange either (getting even better).

My question my local parts centre who i trust and are fantastic to deal with want £200 + VAT for a genuine Lucas alternator as a direct swap for the Bosch one the Bosch one is £340 + VAT and i just cant afford that. Has anyone used one of these ebay alternators or do i bite the bullet and pay for a genuine one from people i trust.W e are going to keep the car for ever and its a pig of a job so i dont want to do it again anytime soon (think i am answering my own question here)

Any feedback welcome

Cheers Alfageezer

If its the one from the East in a black box with three letter name in orange then buy it, i got mine from ebay and paid £85 and its still going strong two years later. However, if you wish to waste £200 then go ahead ..... but, they should be offering you a trade in on your old alternator which should make it £150 - £160.
