Unhappy Opinion on clutch replacement

I'm a recent owner of a 07 v6 6mt. It's the first manual I've driven and I'll go ahead and admit that I have screwed up the clutch. I've put roughly 15k miles on it for normal driving. I chewed through half of it being scared going backwards up a hill. and then I wasn't rev matching when I downshift for engine braking, for about 10k miles. All of that has come back to bite me in that I'm looking at replacing the clutch at 79k . It's not engaging until the top of the travel and it doesn't feel like its grabbing anymore.

My question is... Should I go with OEM parts? or now that I'm forced to replace, is there a better clutch that costs around the same? I do a lot of inner city travel and I don't Auto X or anything like that. so Drive-ability is a must.

My quotes so far for replacement range from 1700.00 to 2020.00

Any advice is appreciated greatly!
