Lower chain tensioner is really easy on that motor, and if you want to do the vanos stage two rebuild (replaces sprockets upperr tensioner and vanos seals) there are a bunch of good DIY writeups online. Right after I bought my m3 the timing chains started to make alot of noise also. I did the lower chain tensioner and a vanos seal replacement, and it sounds like a new motor. If you are handy with a wrench, i would try to pick that up for about 1k. Good luck.
