2010 mini r56 N14, high pressure fuel pump

Today I got a refurbished high pressure fuel pump on ebay and after the mechanic installed it, it didn't even work , like the fuel pressure is not constant and the engine was jerking. The mechanic says it's worse what was already existing on my car. I also noticed it first hand. These high pressure fuel pumps are failing every two and half years. Where can I find the oem parts with out spending more than $1100.
The mechanic ended up charging me twice for the labor, since he has to install a new one.

It's my understanding the HPFP can not be rebuilt. There are a few threads on here about it. Suggest checking the vendors here on NAM (ECS,WMW, etc). I believe the cost has recently come down a bit.

Most of my customers received a free installed HPFP at the dealer because of a class action lawsuit

Mine is 2010 and they say they can only do it for 2007-2009.
i have opened my multiple requests WTH mini customer relations and they would not cover it.

I got my HPFP part purchase reimbursed by mini. Mine is a 2012 but was mfg in 2011, falling under the extended warranty for the HPFP.

what was the mileage on your car when it was covered.

I'm considering filing a lawsuit against BMW MINI. So it cost me 1300$ to replace it and that's lot of money.
My car although produced in 2010 has same engine N14 & same high pressure fuel pump as the r56 S from 2007 - 2009.
When I talked to customer relation why engine and part being same as others and still not covered, they don't have an answer.
I talked to a lawyer, and he said since I bought it used he won't be able to help but other lawyers can take it up.
If you have a 2010 mini cooper and has HPFP failed and is not covered by mini, please contact me, I think if we get five - 10 people, it can be a pretty good case.

Mine had 122k miles. I replaced the part myself too.

If you were not the original owner, would you technically be covered by the extended warranty on the part?

yes, even if you are not the original , you'll be covered by extended warranty. However the lawyers are not taking these cases.
I'm surprised they covered it for you at 122k. I think for the cars beyond 2010, it only covers for 7 yrs and 70k miles.
But I'd encourage any one with 2010 with N14 having the hpfp, get together here.
Mini is cunningly turning away 2010 r56 s with these problems although there is no difference on either engine or part with year that are covered for 10 years to 120k (2007 - 2009)

The warranty was extended to 120k miles, and mine was covered, as it was manufactured in 2011. I found the official Mini notice online somewhere, printed it out and brought it in with me when I submitted for reimbursement. I asked them about it before it hit 120k miles, but that dealership is so shitty with answering their phones or calling you back. I didn't want to wait so I replaced it myself.

Nice you did your self. it takes only half an hour.
I should have done it myself too.
But I didn't have time or a garage to house it with intakes removed just in case if parts are not correct.
So the mechanic ended up charging twice for labor , once for putting in the EBAY part and second time for mini oem ($1100).
so it was a screw up on my part , not thinking twice if I'd end up in this situation because the EBAY part was performing worse than my old existing HPFP.
