fuel pumps

I have my beloved 1998 528 (e39) and because of the wonderful BMW friends I have met on line here I have narrowed my problem down to the fuel pump now I ask you all what brand should I buy, who should I get it from. I have always believed that the true believers of something will never steer you wrong. I will be calling on you all again as I have found am M5

Typing /fuel pump f3 in the bestlinks nets this:
- What are the most often recommended fuel pump & fuel filter brands (1) (2)
Each repair should invariably add to our knowledge base by the process of inexorable incrementalism.
Your job, in return, is to read the suggested threads, where the best people will always add value to those threads, either by pictures or by descriptions, so the next person with the same problem stands on your shoulders.
