Is yours an N47 engine? And are BMW doing the Chain replacement for free?

Lucky guy! I asked BMW if mine qualified for the enhancement and they said No. But they couldn't give me a reason why some N47's qualify and others don't. Mine is a 2011 so I'm hoping the factory build fitted a modified version of the chain & tensioners

From what ive heard they will be doing it in stages, maybe 2007-2009 first then 2010-2012 or whatever years had issues mate, i may be totally wrong but thats what im led to believe, i actually called in the workshop today to see it had been valeted and the engine was stripped right down, she looked a sad sight lol

Yeah, I wouldn't like to see mine in that state! I hope you're right about the staged recall, it'd be nice to have it done without forking out 2000!!
