Timing chain broke on 120d
Hi, i have just been told that the timing chain has broken or slipped on my 2007 (57) 120d M sport 83k.
N47 D20A engine code
The options I have been given are not great. Pay £300 to have head removed and see how much damage been done, if not too bad it will cost £2000, if lot of damage then a replacement exchange engine at £2995 +vat and fitting, poss £4500. Or an engine from BMW £6000.
What should I do, the car is only worth £8500.
I have looked on eBay and there a few sellers offering a fitted engine for between £1595 and £1995.
Are these likely to be ok?
