I had a plastic impeller on my original water pump on my 1993 525i which I believe is the same part as on the 530i, and after the postings I saw on this board I had replaced after 68,000 miles, since I got worried regarding the postings I saw that people had water pumps blowing unexpectedly.. The mechanic said the plastic water pump was in good condition when he pulled it out but replaced it anyway, so you know what happened?? The metal impeller water pump leaked after only 10k miles and I had to have it replaced again..

Just got a new water pump and it has the plastic impeller, but the old one I took off has a metal one! Is the plastic impeller a problem on the 530's M60 also?
