Does the 330d not suffer with the timing chain issues? What problems does it have?

Is the 325d the same engine as the 330d but just detuned?

Glad you got it sorted reasonably cheaply. Im surprised they had never heard of this problem lol. Then again, they denied all knowledge of BMW's being able to be stolen via the OBD port.
