Yes, I remember attending a swap meet/car show and having a milk crate with about 5 good used OEM BMW tii water pumps in it along with many other parts at the swap meet. Two young guys walked up and one asked the other,"What's he got in the milk crate?" The guy kneeling by the milk crate answered that they were used water pumps. The other guy remarked,"What? NOBODY buys used water pumps! I don't know why he brought those to the swap meet." When tii water pumps became non existent and BMW was giving a date of "maybe in 6 months we may have some again" I was there to provide many tii owners with a good used OEM BMW tii water pump to keep their car on the road. Knowledge is power.
