    My new Bosch pump was noisy as well, Aleksander - it still is noisy 20k
later but has muted to a throaty rumble rather than it's initial nasal
whine. I have seen several posts over the past few months commenting on the
noisy new pumps - it wouldn't have anything to do with the fact they are now
made in the Czech Republic, would it?
