The water pump on my 90 E34 535i, 5spd, 128k miles is starting to
leak. So, what
is a good OEM brand for my car. I looked at the EMP Stewart "high
water pumps, but they don't make it for my car. I looked at what else
there and I see several issues:
1. mfrs - water pumps are made by an assortment of mfrs: APA, GMB,
Meyle, Laso and Seleri;
2. price - ranging from $24 up to $58. In contrast, genuine BMW range
to $166 for a remanufactured!
3. propeller material - some are made out of metal, composite
(whatever that is)
So, what do you people recommend? I'm guessing my original water pump
metal propeller, want to stay far away from Chinese made ones and
price is always good, but I'll pay more for well built.
So, let me know what you think. Thanks
