the quote from my dealer was "all german waterpumps leak".  unless the
leak is severe you can probably keep it running a while longer.  the
design is such that the leak will not lead to catastrophic failure..
that's what i was told.  just stock up on coolant.  the dealer (rep)
also told me that prestone and xerex will work fine.
