MSRP for your alternator is $780, although some dealers charge more and some less.
Most "online" alternators are rebuilt units, and I bet you'll have a hard time finding a new part anywhere but a dealer.
A dealer might be able to furnish a rebuilt unit, too.
34K miles and 5 years are VERY low figures for Bosch alternator failure to occur. Did your dealer diagnose the problem or did someone else and you just called for a quote?
34k miles is low even for regulator brush failure, but that's a possibility.
