Timing chain, problem on new build or not?

So, Iíve just ordered my Cooper S and itís gone straight to build. Now Iím starting to read about things I maybe should have checked first . The death rattle! Supposedly this is now fixed and engines built from March 2009 should be fully updated with the fix. If my car is being built now does that mean the engine will be newly built and so have the fix incorporated or will the engine have been kicking around for a bit? Should I worry?

It porbly will have a motor in it that has been lying around for awhile, but not all cooper s have this issue will just have to see.
