Yes, I agree 100% with that statement. My E46 water pump failed at 150K and I indeed fired the "parts cannon" at it. Every part short of the heater core and heater hoses. $1700 at the dealer for everything and I installed it myself. Been strong now for another 51K with no issues. I love my X5, I'm just trying to balance throwing too much money at a 14 year old car. Everything has 150K on it now.
