Best place to get P/S pump for e46 m3

My power steering is making all sorts of moaning and groaning noises when I turn the steering wheel even a tiny bit at low speed. The fluid was pretty nasty and I flushed it all out already with some new Dexron III ATF and the noise hasn't really changed. With that said, I think I need a power steering pump. Wheres the best place to get one? Are there non-OE replacements that are cheaper and good quality, or reman'd ones that are good? Any advice appreciated.

TIA

I got a new one for my 325it on ebay, it was cheap and OEM.
You might give a bottle of 'Lucas Power Steering Stop Leak' a try, I had similar sounding noises in my old e36 325is and put a bottle of it in and never had sounds again. http://www.lucasoil.com/products/dis...%20Stop%20Leak
It's cheap, you don't have a lot to lose if you were just going to replace the pump anyway.
