Z4M Waterpump

I've always heard that the Waterpump should be replaced at about 50k miles due to the plastic impellers. Then I read that the problem was corrected about 2005. I have a 2006 Z4M with 85k miles. ...

Z4M - Cooling Issue

Just added about 1 liter of distilled water to expansion tank on my 2006 M Roadster (62k miles). I haven't seen any sign of leaks, but that seems like a lot of water to add. Any thoughts?
