    yeah, i saw signs of that coming and swapped to the 3rd gen fuel pump asap. its a real issue on the n54, have no idea why BMW hasnt recalled with a product that's reliable. it actually is the hpfp that is the problem, to be exact the seals go bad... maybe with the additives in the gas like the nitrogen in shell, it wears at the seals. correct me if im wrong Click here to enlarge

    im still running on my original fuel pump and since day one Ive given the car a hell of a beating. especially when I went through a whole drifting stage with this car.

    I don't think so. Shell 93 w/nitrogen is all i ever run as my car feels sloppy and sluggish on anything else. car is on its 2nd pump, but 1st with me..

    I find this hard to believe sometimes even though it makes sense. Some of these pumps fail with as little as 400 miles on the odometer and some last up to 45+k. Some dont break at all. Its the cars with extremely low miles that throw this thought out of the water for me. How can the ethanol eat up the seals in just 400 miles while others last so much longer. I think there is some other reason IMO. My first one lasted around 38000 miles. The second one failed in less than 4k. My current one seems fine but who knows whats going on with this ticking time bomb.

    Sounds like there is no rhyme or reason to it.
