    Default Best place for an alternator?

    So last night, literally moments after getting some new front speakers and buying a new headunit and some quality oil for the vectra the alternator packed up on me (couldnt write it) well im 90% certain its the alternator. Im needing a new one but cant afford the price of a vaux item, im not even gonna price it. Where would be best to get one, my local very reliable auto store wont be able to price me one until tomorrow but if all else fails will these ones suffice?

    Dunno what's the best price, but be sure to order the right one. They were changed in 2008 iirc.

    £205 from the local place. Thats a kick in the knickers.

    Is it still possible to get alternators repaired?
