What fuel pump would you buy, new Chinese or used OEM?

Its for my gray market '95 S280. There is this new one on Ebay for $80: Fuel Pump Mercedes Benz 300 400 500 600SE C230 CL500:eBay Motors (item 250437499423 end time Jul-03-09 16:58:41 PDT) or I can get a used one for $35-$40 that I assume is OEM. The cheapest place I've found OEM new was for $170. Which would you buy? BTW the car isn't a driver right now as its needs some engine work but I do want to be able to move it every few weeks to a different parking spot.

I have good experience with Chinese parts, but the ebay listing says nothing about warranty on new part? 99.6% positive feedback on high volume is impressive.
Would the used OEM pump come with limited warranty?

I'm not sure of the warranty. Here is the new OEM pump: Bosch Fuel Pump Says it's Bosch but I thought Peirburg was OEM.
