Hi all, need to replace my alternator, over 200k miles already, just wondering what difference between these two alternators are? Has anyone replace their alternator using aftermarket alternator? Or do you recommend using OEM ones?

Where was your car assembled?
One is for the Optima '11-'13 2.0T Korean made while the other is for the Optima '12-'13 2.0T as well as the Sorento '11-'13 2.4.
