cooling system overhaul

in the coming months I will be redoing my cooling system as preventative maint. my 04 X3 is sitting at 82k miles now. here is what Im going with

BMW coolant
OEM BMW water pump
aftermarket thermostat/housing from either ECS or Turner
aftermarket expansion tank from ECS probably
brass bleed screw
new drain screw
OEM BMW thermostat

any suggestions or thoughts on my parts list?
my hoses appear to look like new, the BMW lived in the coastal SE, then the PNW so it has lived in rubber friendly enviroments.

I cannot see paying 3x for the stewart water pump either.
