Water Pump

Hi Guys,

Am I seeing this correctly?

Less than $100.00 for a Water Pump when the OEM one costs $500.00?

Also I have 79k miles right now and kinda getting paranoid since many have said that the water pump could go any moment without warning. Anyone have any tips on when a water pump is going bad?

Thanks alot!

-Bryan

i think that's the wrong pump...it looks like a belt driven pump. the e9X BMW's had electric water pumps.

The pump itself will run you about $500-600, depending on where you get it.
