Retail price right now is around $5200. It will last as long as you take care of it.

Thank you , should i replace the timing belt?

Abde Dahrouch

there s no leak and i just want to know what i should replace to prevent further problems .thank you for your help

The engine should be a chain, not a belt. The cooling systems are weak on the BMW's, so you might want to replace those parts as maintenance. www.fcpeuro.com
