Question Meinung (Meinungen) auf einer Bosch Wasser Pumpe von PepBoys?

1/3 the price of O.E.M. or aftermarket

(Unless it's constructed on the bank of the Ganges by
itinerant Bulgar day laborers)

Am I opening up a can of "Political Incorrectness" or what?

I don't know what model you have. For the 123 diesel models, when you take advantage of the core credit, the water pump is so cheap that it would seem foolish to use a pump possibly made in Elbonia or someplace. The trick is, of course, that the core pump must have an MB star on it.

Yep, it's always pretty handy to know the year and model.

Have a great day,

Ya think when Pepboys builds their first MB you wil buy it there.

There is only one constant that I know of worth evaluating price on, that is an original part. Is everything on four wheels a MB, are all parts, MB parts, cause they fit?

Do you suppose in your lifetime you can judge accurately when you can get away with a BS part? Surely the country club won't know if your MB has a BS pump on it. Are there other reasons you drive a MB?

Get the best deal going but don't compare apples and oranges.
