Mein Auto: 2007 1Series
You may have resolved the problem with your timing chain by now, but just to let you know I had the same problem for my 1Series 180d. I contacted BMW direct and they gave me 100% parts and the garage reduced their labour by 15 (about 20) per hour. This was out of warranty, but only had 54000 miles and was 2007. It still cost 1850 but that was still a lot less than you were quoting.

Suggest you try your luck with BMW and see what they will offer. From reading other websites, I have come to the conclusion that there is a fault in the crankshaft which causes the timing chain to go. Have you ever heard that?
