Dealer just quoted me at $1500 to replace the cooling/water pump. Damn that's high!
I asked him if they could work with me on the price given my warrant just expired. He said he would call BMW North America to find out if they can make an exception or subsidize my repair.
Keeping my fingers crossed but I'm not hopeful.
Either way, there is no excuse for a water pump to fail after less than 50k miles. This is very frustrating, to say the least! I hope this is not a preview of BMW ownership, post-warranty.
