new vs rebuilt alternator...cost & quality

Greeting, this is my Maiden Voyage - ist posting. I want to know what the cost would be and which is a better choice for an alternator for 2003 530i. How much is a new one vs a rebuilt one?

Also, they told me that the Alternator could not be rebuilt. Should I get it back from them?
I have a feeling they will keep the old one and rebuild it to be sold later and in the meantime they will sell me another...The old "Razzle Dazzle". What ever happened to honesty?

Info would be appreciated as I will return to the mechanic on Monday. If it is a new Bosch as opposed to a rebuilt one, how can I verify that the part is indeed, new?
