FEQ axles

I have a 2003 boxster S that I purchased about a month ago. It has a torn inner CV boot on the right hand side. The grease has splattered out of it.
An independent shop recommended replacing the entire axle assembly, because moisture has most likely already gotten in there. He quoted me a price of $400.00 incl. labor. The axle assembly is around 150.00.
Problem is, the axle assembly is from FEQ, which after some research, turns out to be a Chinese axle.
I called the shop back, to ask him about the axle, and he told me it IS an FEQ, and the work, and the part is covered under a 2 year, 24,000 mile warranty (Any work this shop performs is.) The OEM axle is around 989.00. It would be around $1200 installed.
I'm not sure what I should do.
If the FEQ axle wasn't covered under warranty, I would say NO WAY to the Chinese axle. But since it's covered, I'm considering giving it a chance. The shop manager said he has put these axles in cars, incl. Porsches before, and has never had any come back.
What do you guys think I should do?
