Reliability of the N57 3.0 Diesels compared to the M57.

Fri Jan 31, 2020 10:58 am

Hi we have had our current E70 X5 M57 30d just over 6 years and we are thinking of buying a later F15, probably a 40d.
Current car is on 185k and it’s been very reliable apart from a few common issues that I sorted.

In comparison how reliable is the later N57’s and how common are the rear timing chain issues on them?
