Cooper (Non S) Timing Chain/Tensioner Potential Issue

Hi Chaps,

I`m about to buy a Cooper R56 (non S), manufactured in July 2009. I`ve checked the car details with the BMW VIN decoder, which says it has an N12 engine (120 hp).
Does this engine affected by the timing chain/tensioner issue? If so do you have clue about the price of its replacement in a Beemer garage?

Cheers for the feedbacks.

Regards,
Akos

The N12 engine did not have the timing chain/tensioner issue.

Cool, cheers for the input.
Do you guys know what are the common failures on that particular model?
I`ve tried to chase those up in different forums, however almost threads were about Cooper S. But, what about the non-s?

Thanks.
