Hi Solo Man,

One needs to check on the vin to see what is outstanding on the vehicle. The chains on the N47 were listed but i think the "campaign" has ended. One would need to go to the dealer and see if they can get assistance from BMW if there is a issue with your vehicles timing chain.

Since we have been working on other products we have definitely seen that the timing chains stretch on a variety of different brands,VW, Audi, Merc etc. They have these "light weight" chains which don't seem to last nearly as long as the old timing chains that I knew as an apprentice.
Vanos's, solenoids, sprockets and chains seem to become the norm to need replacement these days.

I wish they would release the recall on the N20 chain and chain guides issue on pre late 2014 motors.

Known problem that has BMW facing a class action lawsuit in the US and Canada
