Timing chain issue?

I had an offer for part trade on a 2001 x5 that apparently has a timing chain issue. I am not familiar with these newer vehicles and am wondering if it is a diy job or best taken to BMW for the repair? It has 360000 Km on it I do not know if it is a 3.0 or the 4.4 engine. The owner is looking for around $4500 which I think is a bit high , but is in decent condition as far as I can tell. These vehicles are selling for around $9000 with lower km's and in need of no repairs. Would it be easier and cheeper to just replace the engine with one out of a wrecked x5? I have not yet looked at this vehicle nor recieved any more information from the owner.

I currently have 6 other BMW's in various states of repair , the newest being a 1992 525iT.

Thanks for any advice.
