The earlier 3 (and 5) series are infamous for their 60 thousand mile water pumps. My 2000 E46's lasted until about 80K. Happily (?), I heard it failing and drove to my mechanic's where the car puked at the entrance to his shop, whereupon my wallet puked out about $400. My E92 just blitzed past 50K and now I'm wondering if I have to worry about replacing the water pump soon. Anybody know if BMW has remedied this or are we still to expect failures every 60K? Thanks for any inputs.
