Seems like all online retailers carry "Graf" brand. From reading
archives it 
seems like this brand is not the best one to use (more prone to leaks, 
noisy). Just called my Dealer and they quoted me $112 + core charge for
(Hepa?). Graf goes for around $50

Does it really worth it or not? Is there any good place to get OEM for 
reasonable amount?

Just checked with Rod - they have it on BO with no TA


2 Igors here and now an Ivan...  invasion of the Rusky's!  8-).  Anywho,
being the cheapy (and also not so bright) that I am I went with the Graf
unit oh like 60k ago.  No issues, with um 'spirited' use.  This went
against everyone telling me not to go with Graf.  It's an Italian unit
IIRC, think the prevailing thought against them is plastic impeller vs.
metal.  I think.  

Regardless, mine's been fine, what the hell, you're likely replacing the
WP with each timing belt change anyway so does it really matter???
Damn...  I got a TB job coming in my near future...  yay.

HTH, good luck.

-Paul plenty of other issues, both car and personal K.
