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?
Please help.
