BMW uses timing chains most of / if not all their cars check all data for chain replacement intervals at you local dealer

Your car does not use a timing belt. The M54 engine in your car has a timing chain, which should not need to be replaced until well over 200,000 miles.

Does this apply for a 2005 bmw325ci..? So no timing chain at 200k?

Yes, your car also has a timing chain. You shouldn't need to worry about replacing it.
