Water pumps goes boom

It's official, at 1800 miles the water pump went today. Low coolant warning while on highway, monitored temp until I arrived at destination, opened hood and coolant tank was near empty with it all over the bottom tray. Puddle soon formed... Never got hot though.

Towed to dealer where they confirmed they see a lot of failures on Q5's, these pumps have non-metal impellers and bodies. He told me the body is the issue and that Audi/VW is aware, but doesn't know if there is a new improved part. As proof it's a problem, they have plenty of pumps in stock...

Still LOVE my B8 S4.


Cheers

Turned out to not be the water pump, hole through one of the radiators caused by debris on highway. $700 to fix.
