yea i would go with that to save money. i prefer OEM as well. they are a heck of a lot more, but there's really no benefit. the only real difference in quality between the reps and the OEM one is the quality of the glass (and also the position of the leveling screw). the glass break more easily on the reps. but if you laminex that ****, then you're good.
