I'm searching for a BMW 320d e92. After some research on autotrader, i shortlisted 2 e92.

Which one you think i should go? The Grey one is tempting as it has also the sunroof

I will change the question, the black 2008 320d had never changed the timing chain, now it's done 105k miles but it seems that it was serviced regularly (every 9k miles). What are the chances that the timing chain will fail?

This may be worth a read if you haven't already mate.

IMO a slim chance, but could happen just like anything else on a used car could go too. Some very mixed thoughts on this topic due to the recall issue on the N47. If it has a good service history and appears a reasonable price it wouldnt stop me buying it so long as when you view it the chain isn't noisy..
