I bought a 2010 BMW 520D in November of last year with a full BMW service history (mix of BMW dealership and BMW specialists) and 118,000 miles on the clock. Much to my dismay I have now discovered the vehicle requires a new timing chain which will cost in excess of £2000. I have phoned BMW UK and they're not interested so does anyone have any ideas or advice please?

Have a look around some forums, the price tallies at about £2k. Have you spoken to the dealer and asked nicely if they can help?

I haven't spoken to the dealer yet and don't hold out much hope there. It's not that I don't trust them but the car should not be failing and BMW in my opinion should not be just washing their hands of it. The service record meets their recommendations and they know the underlying problem is their fault irrespective of the car's age.

Hi,

 

Give it a go, see what they say . It’s also worth researching if there was a recall or not? Did it go back for a fix? 
 

Try posting on forums like PistonHeads to see if anyone has had luck with BMW. Personally I doubt whether they will, as the car is already a decade old. 
 

It’s not unreasonable for a vehicle to throw out major bills at that age and mileage, but give the dealer a go anyway. You never know !
