    If it's any consolation, all cars from all manufacturers would suffer the same faults if it was driven 8500kms per year.
    Pretty much same driving patterns for me. Battery is fine except when it gets to -20 for more than 3 days in a row.

    Good choice, I've been using a ctek for about 3 years now. It's pretty much become standard procedure to trickle charge every 2-3 days when it's below -15 or if I'm going on vacation for 10 days or more.

    Who would you recommend to do a timing chain on N54 335xi?

    I don't have time to do it myself these days, and really just looking to do a couple things before selling the car.

    I asked for a price via Viteks website as I saw them recommended, but it's been about a week and haven't heard back. Anybody who is good and can reply a bit quicker?

    Typically you don't need to do timing chains. Only tensioners and guides.
    Not going to get any more money for this work performed.

    Alpine Autowerks?

    Never leave a BMW unlocked when you park in your garage or overnight as it consumes more power getting everything "ready" VS locking/arming it.

    Always lock/arm it, I never had issues with the battery and had the vehicle for 5 years with just oil and cabin filter changes. Granted it was only 50KM when I sold it.

    We took our 335i into Auto Rite Repair Centres in Crowfoot after the warranty ran out, for some reason we needed injectors.

    They just recently did that so I will report back to this thread.

    Why did you need injectors?
