Question Z3 Water pump failure-Fact or Fiction



I am new to Z3's and the forum. I have 62K on my 2000 2.8 Z3 and all the threads about catastrophic water pump failure have me very nervous. I talked with the BMW service tech about proactive replacement of the pump et al and he said there is no need until it shows signs of failure. Fan wobble, water leaking, noise ect. So my questions are: Are you on your on your original pump, if so, how many miles and what year is your car. If you are not, at what mileage did it fail?
