KWP water pumps ok?

Anyone used the KWP brand water pumps? I normally go for OEM parts but after forking out heaps for a new Behr Radiator to find messy irregular fins welded sloppily, protruding out either side of the core & the piping that separates the fins bowed upwards I couldn't care anymore tbh.........

Stick with OE MB aka Laso. The price difference can't be much -- what $30 more maybe?

Stick with OEM on parts that are hard to replace.

Price difference is about $150 odd, or I wouldn't have bothered with the thread. Some say it's a good brand. I know it's Italian but just wanted some input.

I'd have to agree with the "stick with OE" chorus. I've seen lesser brands have the front bearing start "walking" out the front of the pump.
