use the version from old markings, trust me, Pipe the new pump up the same way as the old one was and you will be fine, The new markings are incorrect.

Found this post from a few years back concerning the difference between the 05 motor and the new one I just picked up form BMW. So on a Saturday afternoon with no one at BMW to answer my question, what have you guys done? Use the configuration from the old pump including the same wire connections as noted above or change the connections ports to the new markings.

Thanks for Shipkiller the removal was less challenging that expected. When you get to those two clips over the fender wells, take an old screw driver heat the end to make a small pry bar, worked great. My Dad make one years ago, has bailed me out some may time I cannot count. Great little pry bar, about 6 inched long with a narrow blade.

Back to the motor, any thoughts? Waiting for BMW or a post from the forum.
