    I own a 2001 7 series BMW with 110,000 miles that looks like it may need a new timing chain.

    Hi all, first time poster here, at a complete loss on what to do with myself but seems to be some very knowledgeable people on here so thought it worth a go I've recently bought a 74k mile 320i convertible from a private seller with close to full service history.

How did she managed you might ask??? The answer is...
