I'm now at 121K and wondering if Pump II is coming soon.
But, I thought I read somewhere that the replacement pumps are an improved design.
It would be great if the replacement water pumps were improved, but unlikely. The old and the new ones seem to have the same part number, leading me to conclude that they are equal.

Does anyone else have better information about the quality of the newer BMW electric water pumps?

So, that's it. I am doomed. There is no patch, no methadone, no substitute. Curse you BMW. Curse you and your seamless power delivery. Curse the incredible sense of road feel. Curse the comfort, the luxury, the envious looks from the masses. I am... hopelessly addicted.
