Obviously the exception to this will be cars that were stood for quite a while after production.
As I understand it, the pump was redeveloped to erase the issues with pump failure found in the old system, it also runs at a significantly higher pressure.
As for mileage expectancy, mine is about to approach 140k and is still on its original pump, so touch wood will be OK. I do know however, that they re bloody expensive (Circa Â£500) from RB if you need one!
