Is the Walbro F20000169 fuel pump an acceptable replacement for the expensive OEM pump? This will be for a 1999 528i.

It will die anyway soon enough so you will be absolutely fine with Walbro and no need to buy superexpensive OEM. I personaly have no name pump and it works just fine for me. It's 20 min job or less so you can replace it anytime anywhere with few basic tools. For price I paid I can buy one more and have it in trunk just in case :) (That was I will do as they give me 50% off for next pump :) )

BTW, if you want Bosch look into Amazon.com, you will be surprised :)

If you decide to go with Walbro F20000169 (about $95), order it from a reputable source (call them first).
This is because there are quite a few fake Walbro sellers (especially on ebay!) out there.
I am on the Volvo forums as well and these Volvo folks warned me about fake Walbro (illegal copy of Walbro).
