I'm over at the x3 forum and they have a number of timing chain issues there. I wonder the x3 drivers are more into ASS...

Just a historical side turn: Nothing new under the Moon, something similar has happened just not far back: Mini Cooper (made by BMW ) 2007-2011 had very similar problem with timing chain and tensioners. It took a class action lawsuit to make BMW to recognize the problem and compensate those who suffered. We may expect something similar with N20 next year or so. BTW lawyers made $2.3M on that case, so if someone knows someone who wants to make some money - this may be a clear case.
