Disappointed with the ebay brake light. Wouldn't recommend might aswell get proper one for sake of 25 quid.

Fitment is a bit s**t in the corners

That's a shame, but unless you get full history details it's a chance you take buying any BMW with an N52 engine.

The only upside is once it's done you know you should be good for at least another 60K miles!

I'm on number 3 and 4 N52 engines, and neither has had a new pump that I know of - numbers 1 and 2 both had to have one! :roll:

So I suppose it's just a matter of time - maybe I should buy a pump when I see one at a good price. :lol:
Z4 3.0Si Sport - Coupe for added stiffness!
Current - Montego Blue, Pearl Grey, Cirrus trim & 295s. Cruise, Storage and pdc. E90 330i as a DD.
Gone - Ruby Black, Pearl Grey & 135Ms. Xenons, heated seats and Professional speakers.
