Question The BEST Replacement Water Pump for the E46

Whiles shopping around I'm seeing these brands for Metal Impeller Water Pumps at these prices and no clear consensus with in the forums and between the experts over which, after you exclude the Stewart Pump, is the best.

My car is currently at 56,000k miles and my idler pulley and water pump pulley cracked whiles driving down the Major Deegan 87 South Hwy in NY. I'm considering replacing the original 2001 330i water pump with a metal impeller one whiles I am in there replacing the pulleys.

Pick one of these that you have used and are happy with or you would get if the Stewart Pump was NOT available.

GEBA Metal Impeller Pump @ $55

GRAF Metal Impeller Pump @ $63

BOSCH Metal Impeller Pump @ $70

HEPU [Plastic/Composite?] Impeller Pump @ $85

OEM Remanufactured Metal Impeller Pump @ $114

and lastly the Stewart EMP Water Pump @ best price $165 to $179

Stewart juxtaposed next to one of the other meagerly oem designed pumps

Saying I don't choose the Stewart what is the next best Pump on this list?
