I had an older model MB that had a water pump that still costs $800.00-$1000.00 to replace today at an Indy. The cars ran extremely hot and fans and water pump barely worked and pumps went bye bye often. I ended up doing it myself for the cost of the water pump which I found for $200.00 aftermarket online. It definitely wasn't as good of quality as an OEM but it worked fine for a car with 200k miles. The first time I replaced it in my car took me all day. The second time I replaced it in my daughter's car (same model), only took me about 3 hours. If I followed the manual, I would have had to remove so much more but figured out some shortcuts via the forum. Now, what I was scared to death to do, I could easily knock out under 3 hours on that model. Hopefully someday this could be the same scenario for our cars. Lower pump price and more folks familiar with the job with good tips.

Is that off just the part or the labor as well? 20% off just the part is no deal as you can get that routinely through internet purchase or as a favor from your SA.
