price wise is still not to expensive as they will provide free shipping within US.
and best of all, it comes with the lifetime replacement warranty.
i think this will gives us a peace of mind!!!!

maybe we get in bulk, there might be some discount.......
who know.....

Thanks for adding this option. I'm not a fuel pump (or any other pump) expert, just another rider who rebuilt his fuel system recently after a meltdown failure on the highway. While this pump looks fine, I now realize just how critical the pump's operation is to my security. Considering that, I would only purchase from BMW or Beemer Boneyard and it would be a pump with a proven history. It doesn't seem like the right place to save a buck.

Advance autoparts has discounts that vary almost daily. One day 25% of the next 15% off then if you buy over $50 or $100 you get $20 off the next purchase. You have to hawk them. You pay on line then pick it up at the store or sometimes they have free delivery.

Rock Auto is good because they will show a cross reference for a more common car.

Also try googling the part number then go to the shopping tab.

Since we are in the fuel pump discussion... how does 'heat shrink tubing' hold up in a fuel tank?

Depends on the material from which the heat shrink is made. Most heat shrink is not good in a fuel environment. You'll need to know the material in order to judge its acceptability in the fuel. I would not use it.

PTFE heat shrink *you'll have to go to an industrial supplier, like McMaster-Carr, to get it* is pretty robust, it wouldn't cost much to run a test of the stuff in a cup of gas.
