Uro aftermarket parts

Just curious if anyone has used Uro parts yet?

One of my two washer pumps just started leaking and the price difference between oem and aftermarket was too compelling to pass up ($4 vs $40 at ecs tuning). I figured what the heck since this is such an easy part to replace.

when I bought my idler and tensioner pulleys for my M3 I didn't get the URO stuff--it looked too cheap after I researched them. I went with the INA and Febi parts from Pelican. Now, something like a washer pump, for $4, sure I'd give it a shot. On the X3. Replace one on an E46 and plan to spend all day--I only wanted to do that once, and bought the OEM part.

So you're prob OK with an URO pump--but I'd spend a bit more if the part was critical.

I just bought a URO windshield washer pump for my 325XI @ ECStuning.com two weeks ago. It's been working great since I installed it!
