Stock is 195 (but will usually read a bit above that). I would go with the 180. The 160 will be too cool for your car. The 160 is more for heavily modded cars and track races. The 160 might throw SES lights as well for normal driving. 180 is what I use in the MN weather and it does just fine.
PS: Most shops (not all) will tell you to replace parts with factory equivelant parts. They may not know what else will work and don't want to be responsible for something going wrong. Just an extra .02
