Well said. I was stupid enough to replace my perfect working original water pump with a s..t bosch pump, which shattered in just 3 month and left me stranded at 11PM with wife onboard.

But before that happened, I was even more stupid to sell the old pump on ebay! So I have to purchase an emergency replacement on a high price and less quality.

Lesson well learnt.
