[ba] 5 cylinder water pump reliability

It looks like I may need to switch out the water pump again after only 2.5
years of use and light mileage. I know the last couple have been sourced in
the 3rd party aftermarket and I'm wondering if there is any real benefit to
using the Audi OEM unit. At this point I'm ready to spend factory pricing
for the parts if there's a reliability benefit. I've been listening to a
squealing pulley on the existing unit since it was installed ( the noise
manifests when the engine gets hot).

Thanks for tips/info.
