Default Attn: BMWs with N47 engines (320d / 520d)

I came across this BMW service bulletin which seem to imply that timing chain tensioners might not be keeping up with the timing chain expanding/ extending in time leading to potential engine failure.

Might be worth printing this out and taking it to your dealer during the next service

It would be a good idea if some list could be compiled or a thread started on which engines available in India were non-interference types, so that one could rest assured on performance or failure of timing chain not leading to damage to engine.
