i know, it's a serviceable component! it defeats the advantage of longitudinal engines having the consumables are within easy reach.

does anyone know what the official timing chain renewal schedule is? and has anyone got a quote for having that service done by a dealer? might lead to an exodus of N47 owners dumping their cars just before the chain renewal service - and a load of poor unknowing customers buying "approved used"s that blow up a few months down the line with no promise of a warranty because the chain is "serviceable"! (maybe I am exaggerating!)

either way the N47 is 6 years old now and by BMW standards that means the replacement (P47?) may be due within the next 2-3 years.
