E82 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by either an inline 6 in the 128 or the twin turbo rocket sled 135.

Head gasket

Hi I'm new on here and looking for a little guidance!
I have a 2008 123d msport and my head gasket as gone, I am going to change the head gasket myself as I'm good with tools but I just wondered if there was any timing marks for the chain? Also does anyone know the head torque procedure and tighteness?
Also any hints or tips you guys have for this particular vehicle?
Any help would be apprieciated
Kind regards dan

I wouldn't attempt it without a manual. Could you get a Bently for the same motor in the 3 series, for instance? You need to know torque but also sequence of loosening and tightening, I suspect. You may also need to replace fasteners for reassembly.
