Water Pump Again?

I replaced the original water pump on my '01 base box when it failed around 65k miles. Now I'm approaching 120k miles. Should I consider replacing the water pump again? Your thoughts?

ps Daily driver in SoCal. Nothing but praise for this amazing ride! : )

Porsche should have added the water pump replacement to the 60K mile service 9as well as a dozen other things).. If they had, TWO cars wouldn't be sitting broken in my shop right now. Both these has water pump impeller failures that led to head cracks.

If I touch a car with more than 50K miles and the OE water pump I seriously recommend replacing it.

I would've replaced my water pump at 60k, but it died at 59k. Lol.
