I've done this mod to my mk3s. I fitted the OEM socket as it's more or less flush when fitted, and doesn't have a cap/cover.
If you ever tilt your rear seats forwards to carry large items in the car put something padded over the socket cover or it will leave an impression in the top or the rear seat base that takes ages to go again.

The OEM ones are definitely designed to be quicker (and cheaper :) ) to install.
The only advantage they have in their 'snap' fixing is that they can be removed from the outside.

I just mentioned the seat imprint as I picked up some parts in one of my mk3s and when I got home the seat base had a lovely round imprint in it. It took loads of massaging to get rid of it, and didn't finally disappear for a few weeks. Your seat base looks in really good condition and it would be a shame to get any marks in it :)
