Our waterpumps are generally good for 130-150k. Typically a bearing fails and you might start to get a drip from the weep hole. I think I replaced mine around 150k because it was growling pretty bad and pretty quickly. A day or so later it started dripping so I had to stop driving until the new pump came in. I bought OE (original) BMW and it has lasted another 130k so far. I might need to buy a spare soon!

Agreed, I don't think I have ever had a water pump catastrophically fail, though I have seen the weep turn into a gush pretty quickly.

I'm actually a little curious now, why do the M5's seem to have good water pump life but non M5 E39's have far more issues? Obviously the design is different somehow, just curious what the difference is?

Well except for replies saying "what did you mean"
So, let's sum it up:
I posted a thread and I've used used abbreviation that needed explanation. One person asked and I've answered.
The thread would go in oblivion as it probably deserved but then you came in your shining armor full of tirade how the world is wrong and it's lazy and stupid to not type the full words etc..
Why not just ignore me? You're very valuable here and measly worm like me should just be ignored.
Anyway, GFY.

Some abbreviations may be susceptible to multiple interpretations, which is why they can be difficult to discern out of context.

Exactly, that's what I meant. I try not to use offensive words such as stupid and lazy but apparently not all do.

Well, lazy really not that offensive to most I would think. In context it was simply lack of effort to put down all the relevant information to make for a clear understanding across a written media.

As to stupid, that was not meant to be offensive; it was just an abbreviation: Susceptible To Unusual Personal Interpretations Directly! I am sure the original poster meant no offense. Just a bit lazy.

Just another illustration why it helps to write most things out!

Jerry

You are taking this to personally, and I clearly stated this was not to you but a general rant. It was never to you just a major complaint about how things are changing. I don't not reply to abbreviated posts, to not look stupid, not to be mean or keep info from people.
