2000 X5 Timing chain rattle

I gave a 2000 X5, with 147,000 miles on it. It recently started making a noise, that I thought sounded like the fan hitting something. I took it to my mechanic and he said that the noise was coming from the timing chain. He said it us 20 hours of labor to fix, plus parts. According to Kelly Blue Books, the car is only worth about $5,000. So, doing the timing chain would cost at least half that. Any advice in what to do with it.
