I had Rovers designed before the involvement, very different engine, but I've had my share of M62s and have a pair in my driveway add we speak.

The timing chain guides usually last to around 200k. Vanos seals are likely going to need doing and don't look as fun as M52s. Valve cover gaskets and valley pans leak like they were designed to be fluid passages.

146k Realtor miles is a lot of city and start-stop driving. Don't know anything about the EAS on E53s.
