Water pump for S50B30

Hi everyone! I have a question. I need to replace the water pump of my euro s50b30 and the OEM is much $$$. I read in this forum that the plastic impellers of the pump usually broke. I found this one on ebay:

http://www.ebay.es/itm/270921625558?...84.m1423.l2649

This one have metal impeller.

What do you think about?

Thank you very much and sorry for my english.

Water pumps which don't have plastic impellers are something I highly suggest. The proper water pump for your S50b30 will be BMW part number 11511406650. The genuine BMW pump does have a metal impeller as seen in the photo below, I'd suggest sticking with that unless you have high end aftermarket options available to you.
