did the last owner but the same pump in? the plastic one? or the metal?
When I look into the last owner's records..the part no: 11517503884 and on my google search it has given me this: http://www.eap4parts.com/index.html?target...html&lang=en-us
which says "Water pump" original BMW-- so i guess its the platic one:
Any way here is some info which helps for us to make a decision ...from the previous records:

This is all from the previous owner... below is the info done by my mechanic a week ago:
Problem: CUST think he has a coolant leak. He is seeing coolant on floor when engine is very hot. Themostat is leaking. Replaced thermostat.

I asked the mechanic to fix the problem. But later after a week I see leakage and when I called him and had a check up then he was saying there is a water pump leakage...
So, looking into alll the previous jobs done to my 95 325i what do u guys think of the problem might be?
Thanks for your support guys.
