no wait a minute here H25,....more, well okay, but yer timing chain is supposed to stretch...I suppose this one has a double-decker chain to extend the life of the valve train, but should change that one at 200,000....honestly do not see how you could duck this fact~

Point taken. I looked at some forums before posting, didn't arbitrarily pick that number. Some guys were saying they had trouble begin at about that mileage.

And when having maintenance or repairs done take it to a shop that specializes in imports. Your local garage or run of the mill repair facility will have no idea of what they're looking at. My Nephew found that out the hard way with his '98 528i. HTH. -Jim
