Thats BMW prices for you, try an independent, pity your over the pond, I would do it for about $2000, Yes I have heard of the guide fracturing before, its not a common fault but does happen.If it's the camshaft chain tensioner, that's easy. You'll only have to remove the valve cover. But if it's the side tensioner(s) that'll involve removing the whole timing cover which is a huge drag.

I stepped in a plate of Pasta the other day - now I have to worry about my Carbonara footprint!
