He probably left out the part about the old battery being drowned in water from clogged sunroof drains.

That black one ends in 7 hours later today and is still sitting at just $3000. It will probably go to five or six or something but that's still a pretty decent deal. If I had the space for another I'd probably get it.

Perfect first car for a kid or a suburban family workhorse. Wish I was in the market.

A 2012 E70 35d popped up on Craigslist in my town for $2,500 with 150k miles and a broken timing chain. Should I do it???

wpoll will become famous soon enough
The later X5 diesel has the timing chain at the rear of the engine so a timing chain replacement is an "engine out" task. The N57 engine has a poor reputation. :-(

Wouldn't "broken timing chain" imply bent valves and smashed pistons?

Timing stuff on the back of an engine is stupid. I thought only VW/Audi was that dumb...

Is it an interference engine?

Using a lift, drop the transmission.

"All this for 850 including VAT for N47 and 950 including VAT for N57 engine. estimated prices."
Really? That cheap? From UKL https://timrevettsprestige.co.uk/bmw...ments-n47-n57/
