Exclamation Would like some info on E53 X5 3L Diesel engine

Hi all
I am new on the forum and from South Africa, have owned BMWs for must be 30 years. I am interested in buying a X5 3L Diesel and would like to know if any one of you can tell me if the cam on this engine is belt or chain driven, I know it is a simple question, but whom can I ask on a Sunday?
Regards
Gerhard

Welcome to the Werkz.

Have a look at RealOEM.com Online BMW Parts Catalog

Hopefully you'll be able to dig the information out from the diagrams. Hope to see you poking around the site again soon.

Don't knock because my missus will come out and rip you a new one.

Dabsy, if you are in the area swing past as well.
