Water pump recommendations

Hey, folks, looks like I'm now replacing a water pump. Which should I go with?

Advance Auto Parts down the street from my workplace can get me any of the following overnight:

Brand, Price
ASC, $32.98
Cardone, $35.99 (Part A5581111)
Cardone, $41.99 (Part 5581111 ... note no "A" in part number, I don't know the difference)
Beck-Arnley, $35.99 (Part 1310234, new replacement)
Beck-Arnley, $62.44 (Part 1311422, new OE-type)

Or, from the parts link here:
Brand, Price
Geba, $55.04
Laso, $45.77

Any of these brands notably better than the others?

Don't know if one is better than another, I'd go with parts from this site.

I paid $35 at the dealer a couple of years ago. It doesn't happen often, but the dealer had the lowest price.

Thanks for the answers so far. If anybody has an alternate recommendation, let me know.

I do need two fuel injectors also, and this site had a lower price than Advance, plus free shipping on orders over $100. So I could get the Laso pump from the parts link here and eat up some of the savings, but buy all in one place.

Question is, can I wait four or five days to get the pump? ... Or will it finish coming apart before then?

Today it actually hasn't leaked a drop.

There was a period of time when the aftermarket new pumps didn't work as well as the rebuilt Mercedes dealer pumps and the price was less at the dealer. Seems as though the clearance at the impellers on the aftermarket ones were not correct and that allowed the cooling system to overheat with an aftermarket pump. Again, it's been awhile since I've been in the market for one, so my information may be a bit dated, but it won't hurt to check.

You might want to try www.**************.com. I bought a waterpump from them about 2 years ago and installed it in my 84 euro 240d. I believe the brand is meyle. They will also send you the water pump gasket and intructions on how to do the job. I found this pump to be of good quality although a little more expensive than some of the other brands your looking at.

I've used Autozone Pumps, works fine. They have a lifetime warranty and I think I paid around 40.00 bucks for it.

I put a Laso from this site on mine about 3.5 years ago....works great.

I also have a spare Laso in case either of our other cars decides to have a problem.

The water pump on mine, would be fine for a day, then leak, then OK, then... don't start! You've got very little running time left, I think.

Be real sure you get the right one.

A few years back, mine crapped out in the middle of nowhere (Brownwood, TX). NAPA special ordered on for me. When it came in, the shaft was too short for the pulley to line up and too fat to fit through the hole on the fan. Rather than spend time waiting for another, I found someone to enlarge the hole in the fan and used a mess of washers to space the pulley.

It worked fine, but I checked it every I filled up with fuel. That is another little improvement I will be making in the next few months.

I got the Laso from here. (Note - don't forget the gasket on the pump like I did. Unless you like doing it twice).

I've had a Laso on the 300SD for about 2.5 years without any issues.
