    When a C600/650 comes into a dealer in Italy with a noisy chain tensioner, they are biting the bullet and replacing the tensioner, guides, chain and cam gears. And that's without an official Italian recall. BMW USA needs to Step it Up...

    I'm curious and would like to take a poll from all who see this post to find out who so far have noticed problems with the timing belt and if so what was your odometer reading at the time.

    No problems, but a noticeable intermittent noise which I brought up to the techs attention at the 6k service. They confirmed and it's been at the dealer since April 15th.

    Thanks for the replys guys.....keep it coming. The more input on this timing belt issue the better we can help and inform our fellow forum members. I think this is an awesome UMV, but if BMW needs to make improvements they need to hear it from us.

    So far so good with my '13 GT, no odd sounds at 1350 miles. At least I have a well tested '94 K1100LT to fall back on if needed. So far with 72,000 miles it hasn't failed in any way.
