    Hello. I am thinking about buying a new X5. Was told they have the N47T engine where the timing gear starts to rattle. It's supposed to be fixed to the point that the chain will not break, but it could make some noises, maybe around 100.000 km. Now when I check the parts catalog at RealOEM I...

    I have been creeping around the shadows of this forum ever since I bought my 2003 540i Sport Auto and I must say, the knowledge this community possesses is humbling to say the least. I am having a potential issue with my new love and could use some advice. When I was buying it I took it out...
