German build quality is no longer the golden standard. I have recently replaced a perfectly working original water pump with a brand new Bosche one, as a PM. Its impeller shattered in just a few month. It caused more damage than it supposed to "fix". Go figure.

I'm now no longer throwing new pieces blindly just to PM. I have no issues with VCG, OFHG, CCV, so no way in hell will I touch these part, until oil leaks.
