Have you experienced a water pump failure in your E9X M3? If so, what model year and at what mileage? Any extenuating circumstances at the time (tracking car, low coolant, extreme temperature, etc.)?

I'm debating whether to do mine at 86k. I found a Rein brand for a fraction of the price of OE. Would you put in a new aftermarket or keep the old one in if there's nothing wrong with it.

Good question, I'm not sure. I'm wondering if these things aren't way over engineered and may work for the life of the car on this model? Perhaps overcompensating for the problems on the previous generation? I found some mentions of preventive replacements and cooling problems that were most likely thermostat related, but the water pump was replaced simultaneously "while they were in there." I haven't come across any threads where the culprit was directly identified as a water pump failure, even for the super high mileage cars.
