After all this, you'll have a bullet proof X5.

This is a 180,000 mile chain from M62.

Since only one chain it's much longer and this one is only maybe 7-8mm longer out of close to 2000mm.

If the chain actually stretched It would be the first time I've ever seen it.
Yes I will take a picture and compare the chains. It certainly looks like they are streched but it could be the guides that are completely ruined. I have not removed the chains and guides yet...

N62 misfire

Without some absolutely amazing defect I can’t imagine a chain actually stretching. The tiny amount is “Stretch “in the chain that I replaced it was certainly just wear at every pin .

On the M 62 with maybe almost a 2 m long chain it was only about 8 mm longer than new but it felt more like an inch because of the guides being gone
