Very nice video!
BTW what video software did you use for the video editing?

Good to know that the factory WP bearing is bad at 125K per your video.

For cross-reference purpose, I posted a DIY on "Partial Cooling Overhaul at 116K" a while back. In there, we discussed what need to be replaced, and what can wait until later.

Very impressive video. I noticed you used the upgraded "metal" impeller water pump.
I recall getting 155K out of my 01,3.0 X5 water pump. Have you done a video on Dual Vanos repair? Thanks

Thanks! Yeah at some point BMW changed over to all metal water pumps, so I don't think plastic impellers have been made for some time.

I have done the dual vanos repair but unfortunately I didn't record a video on it. Hope to make that video on the next M54 I get my hands on.
