Mein Auto: 2006 530XI
Hello All, Electric WaterPump

This is my first post. I had a waterpump replaced in my 530XI and it cost me $1500.00 because it was overheating and I had a cracked housing. At first the dealer wanted to charge me $1,850 but I said no and I would come get it. Then the service guy told me that he could ask his manager if he can do it for $1,600. So I said I would think about it. So when I was about to call the service guy back and say no he called me and said his manager would do it for $1,500 with a 2 year warranty. I just feel like these BMW dealerships are getting over on us. The car is paid off with 167K on it and it runs fine and looks great for a second car for back and forths to work. The notes say I may have a possible transmission problem because at abrupt stops the vehicle jumps forward. But the service guy said it could just be a software update on my receipt notes. I don't want to give this ride up but I may because I'm not spending $7000 to $8000 for a transmission repair.

Thanks

Welcome to Bimmerfest! I've moved your question to the F60 5 series forum, you'll get more feedback in here. That seems like a lot for a water pump. You need to find an independent service shop and stop going to the dealership.

New Pierburg water pump is around $350. Any competent BMW technician should be able to replace the pump in about 3 hours.

About the transmission... do you know if the trans was serviced (fluid/filter change) on that car?
