I've seen the aftermarket fenders listed anywhere from $100 to $200 already painted. Usually the $100 fenders have an additional $75 in shipping or other hidden cost. I've also seen them locally for $125-145.
For the money, you can't beat the Mazdaspeed deal. The fenders are right around $125 & I just received one with some other parts Fedex 2nd day for about $25 shipping. (I guess the larger sheet metal is like the Mazdacomp exhaust where 2nd day is the standard shipping, but it was WAY cheaper than I expected) So essentially for the same price, I'll stick with the OE pieces.

For the record, along the fender shipping discussion, when I ordered the belly pan (plus a few other items) from Mazdaspeed Tim told me that their shipping rates are exclusively by weight - the size of the box makes no difference.
The box was darn near as big as the hardtop I had sitting next to it.
