Once it blows the engine will never be runnable at normal temp with the damaged pump?

I would say going straight to red can be considered a warning if it cools down enough afterwards to be able to drive it home.

Thanks for the info.

: : Or does it just blow suddenly?

: : I have a 9/95 production, and after reading a recent message from someone with a 10/95 with a confirmed plastic impellar, it did wonder to fuel my paranoia... pumpafobia?
: : What really worries me is that it will blow without warning and require towing or something.

: : Do these pumps usually provide any warning that they're going to blow?

: : Also, is there any way that BMW NA (or other) can determine for a fact if my car has the plastic impellar based on my VIN#? Shouldn't BMW have a record of exactly which VIN was last to be loaded with plastic?

: : Thanks...
