Smile what's the difference with these two OEM fuel pumps?

I searched for an OEM fuel pump and found 2 different part numbers.
16 14 1 183 687 is listed as OEM at places like partsgeeks and
16 14 2 229 672 is listed as AFTERMARKET OE genuine BMW.

the first one is in the 311.00 - 367.00 range
see it here:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Genuine-16-14-1-183-687-Fuel-Pre-Pump-/200776081419

the 16 14 2 229 672 is in the 230.00 range
see it here:
https://www.germanautosupply.com/store/bmw/fuel-injection-system/oe-genuine-fuel-pump.html

that's the best I was able to do online.

Question 1 : what is the difference between the two, other than the color of the plastic? they BOTH say genuine BMW ?

Question 2 : Which is better, if any?

Question 3 : Why the 100.00 price difference?

Question 4 : I see the best price at
http://www.germanautosupply.com/stor...fuel-pump.html
funny thing is that when I googled them, their "webstats" site came up, and shows them as getting only 4 hits per day, etc. Does anyone have experience with them?
(the 230.00 price was from ebay, but also supplied by germanautosupply)

Thanks for any insight you can give me on this.
Please help the New to BMW guy!

THIS NOTE ADDED AT : AM Eastern time by Dave:

I just found some additional info that might be CRITICAL to my problem!
THE MORE EXPENSIVE PUMP SAYS "PRE PUMP" .
Is THAT the difference? Does my car need to somehow be "pre-pumped"? to build the pressure up before start up?
If so, then why do they sell the cheaper ones that don't say "PRE PUMP" ? they sure look the same.

This dumb question must be a no-brainer for you here at bimmerfest.
I've learned so much from your insights and answers!
thanks in advance, guys and gals!
Dave
