espace - special alternaor?

Hi Gents, good to be back after a while in the mountains. Electrics starting to cost money First a new battery, not cheap, and then last week total power failure. Renault said it was due to the alternator packing in, causing the battery to gradually lose all power. No problem to replace alternator, but said it is a special, water-cooled type and would cost approximately 8 times the cost of a basic type. Is this possible? Also, they said they normally last at least200,000K's, but my car has done only 80,000 - any chance of Renault coughing up? or am I dreaming
I have read masy posts on this subject, but didn't find any about this water-cooled type.
Any ideas gentlemen (and Ladies)
Cheers, Graham, Opava, Czech Republic
