Question Aftermarket vs LR part

Hi everyone! First post here so thanks for having me!

So I put a nice hole in the front wing of my 2007 Defender 110 (won't get into that embarrassing story).

The price difference between an aftermarket part and the LR part is massive (nearly 4X)

Here are the 2 parts I am looking at: Search results for: 'ASB710260' - Paddock Spares

I usually try to stick to genuine parts, but this is a fairly straightforward piece. I also live in Costa Rica and have to pay 50% import tax, so the price difference gets that much more exaggerated in the end.

I am just scared that the aftermarket part might be made of fairly "thin" aluminum. It's hard to get parts shipped here, so I want to buy the right one, but also don't want to pay 4X the price for nothing. As this is way out of my line of expertise, I'm hoping someone that actually knows what they are talking about could chime in.

Thanks in advance! Nic
