Shop4parts thermostat

Hi, does anyone know if the shop4parts thermostat for a 1.2 16v is a FIAT item or good quality part? I have changed mine twice now, brought from a local motor factors and they seem to fail / stick open during and after Winter.

if you want dealer part then dealer it is
by the way you are lucky as fiat thermostats always fail shut that i have seen and go on to cause cylinder head gasket failure
got one in today strangely enough
