You know I seen many cars that after looking at alumminum based build parts it's either probably a car thing or people should really consider installing cast iron on some key componets instead of a plastic water pump impeller.

...which would be why BMW switched from plastic impellers, to metal, to composite.

Lucky you I don't have that kind of money to invest on a car an overhaul every 160 or so miles should be good enough for me.

Mein Auto: BMW 323ic
Additional beneficial knowledge

Thanks for the additional information. I flushed and replaced the coolant at 40,000 and 70,000 miles as well as replacing the thermostat on my 1998 323ic thinking I was being proactive; now has 71,000 miles non it. I baby the heck out of it, it's never seen snow and rain very seldom. My wife has to move her traverse out of the garage when the beamer isn't in storage because I garage it 365 days a year.
