    For something as important as a water pump, Id buy genuine m8. I think you will get a part refund for your old one as well.

    Ive just had mine done at £500 odd from an indy - under warranty though :)

    C3BMW have been around for years. I would say if it's OEM then it should be okay... then again, the price isn't that different from a genuine one.

    C3BWM are a very good company. I have delt with them a few times for parts, very knowledgeable and helpful.

    I bought a water pump from them for my e36 m3 evo and it was OEM spec.

    It's not too difficult to do the water pump yourself, mostly just a case of unbolting lots of bits for access. If you know your spanners that is :p

    well, the thing is, i'm in Malaysia and wud like my mates to buy it for me and take it back to malaysia...

    the price of the genuine water pump here is like 2 times the price in the uk..and not need to mention, no OEM pump in malaysia for M3..

    Still thinking..

    In that case, I think if you're going to that much effort you should negate as much risk of getting a ropey one as possible and stick with a genuine one. Try sending a PM so Stealer for a price and www.bmminiparts.com. You will have to do a 'Price Finder' on BMMini parts but they normally get you a price pretty quickly. There postage can sometimes work out expensive though so you might find Stealer is cheaper!
