Timing Chain issues - Which years?

Hi All,

Iím going to look at a Cooper 2.0 SD Roadster later this week.

Iíve heard some horror stories with regard to timing chains. Firstly what do I look/listen for. Secondly, Iíve read that the engines were modified/improved late 2011/2012, is this true.

The one Iím looking at is a late 2012 registered but not sure on build date. Is there any way I.e. Chassis Number/Engine number that I could check?
