Default Re: Lasso water pump: YES or NO?

I just had the site updated to reflect the pump being re-manufactured. Keep in mind, reman BMW water pumps are put back to the original off the shelf specs, they are the next best thing to a "brand new" genuine BMW water pump. They also carry the same warranty as any new BMW part.

Default Re: Lasso water pump: YES or NO?

Has anybody on the forums tried out the laso water pump?
I'm not to Concerned about it failing with in 50k miles give or take, but for 150 for a new pump is a deal I don't wanna pass up,

The only thing that Concerns me is doing any damage to the coolant system over that time period,

You guys seriously make me laugh.

So much misinformation on this damn site.

Ive been through two OEM pumps on my car and I only have around 66k on i now.

Both OEM pumps had bearing failure. Premature if I might add.

Ended up going with Saleri which is basically a re-branded Laso. Zero complaints from me.

I have a review for it floating around somwhere on here. I honestly believe the quality is on par if not superior to the OEM unit. Main difference is a Composite (plastic) impeller on the OEM and a Metal impeller on the Saleri/Laso

For a $150 for a new pump for the S54 you'd be an idiot not to do it.

Ya all need to stop being OEM nut huggers and realize there are other suitable OE options out there.

Saleri/Laso pump with OEM gasket and you'll be just fine.

More failures have been reported on the aftermarket. My OEM one currently has 112k on it. The only ones that seem to wear prematurely are the Z3M pumps (different pn; I think they come with weaker bearings because of the lower red line)

Replaced it at 58k now at 66k and change.

Other members have more miles than I do on the same pump. Just do some quick searches laso and Saleri are the same.

Zero Bearing play so far.

I've done some searches on google/ m3forum/ e46Fanatics no real reviews on the LASO. I did see your saleri review, good to hear your water pump is doing well,

Still Debating on what I wanna get , oem or laso

In the end it's your money and decision. Go with what you think will be best for your car.

You'll get so many varied reviews from person to person. So it's kind of a wash.

Just don't always listen to the oem chants. Lots of OE replacement parts that are equal in quality if not better.
