Arch liner

I noticed at the weekend that the driver's side front arch liner had ripped from its mounting point. Looks to have been caused by stones because the pain has been chipped off the mount as well. I've seen this is a known issue but my cars out of warranty.

The replacement part is £205. Before I buy the most expensive piece of felt in existence does anyone know if these have been upgraded at all so they won't rip?

Is there an alternative option for replacing or covering it to protect it?

I've only had the car 3 days, but have already started fiddling. Annoyingly I didn't spot the damaged liner before I bought the car. The dealer is going to send me a replacement, but I didn't want the sill getting battered with mud and water so made a temporary fix until the replacement arrives.
I cut out a piece of plastic from an old paint tray in the profile of the sill. Put it behind the liner and plugged the liner into it with the plastic plug. Not pretty, but it plugs the gap and is solid.
