  1. Diesel Cam/Timing Service

    Hi all, Looking at a couple of 320d's, 2005/2006 reg and had a query about the Cambelt/Timing Chain. I understand BMW have been using chains rather than rubber belts for some time now so presume these don't have to be changed for the life of the car. However, does anyone know if it still has to undergo a service @ 60-70k. Any tensioner/roller changes for example? Thanks
