    Genuine one mate there are 2 types with trade club the most expensive one is £156 + vat as I have just had to do mine last week. The full CANBUS cars are apparently very sensitive to after market ones some folks have had issues but you might be fine, expensive risk though, changing them is strainght forward as well about 1 hour.

    How many AMPs you need depends not only on the engine model but also how much equipment your car has fitted at the factory.

    Its a bit hard to see while its still on, will pop to vxl in the morning and find out, but at a guess i think it is the 100 amp one.
