febi oil pump..............how does it work???

i got a new febi oil pump to install in my 2002. First question is, is this a quality oil pump? i have heard of them having problems, but i'm not really sure what to expect. Any comments in this area? the second question is about the 3 bolt hub that the gear bolts to. On the old pump, the flange was pressed on, but on the new one it looks like it needs to be screwed on in some manner. Has anyone noticed this before? did i maybe get the wrong one by mistake? the box it came in says. "11 41 1 269 549" i would like to get this back together as soon as possible, but i'm not quite sure what to do! Thanks for the help, -Reid

The pump is the right part number (...549)

Febi Bilstein is OK, not OE but a bit cheaper (not like his brother August Bilstein whose got the killer dampers!)

The question you have revolves around the pumps changing from the old flange with three-bolt sprocket to the new version with a single fine-splined hole and one nut & washer.

To use your new pump (OE BMW changed to this style, too) you need:

11 41 1 273 688 sprocket, oil pump

07 11 9 900 079 nut, pump sprocket

07 11 9 932 634 washer, pump sprkt

About $10 in parts.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
