Water Pump on 1997 Volkswagen Passat

I just got my '97 Passat. Today my car started making a weird noise so I took it in to a local shop (first time) and was told the water pump needed to be replaced. The cost is $450.00. Is that a reasonable price?

Was about to replace timing belt due to car now having 106k total miles. Water pump was replaced in August 2012. 40-50k since then.
