comment Are there any double-DIN bluetooth stereo system that can connect to multiple devices at once?
The problem is that the result of "Are there any Xs that do Y?" and "Which X should I buy?" is the same: a speedily-obsolete list that's also a potential spam magnet. I don't think there's a good way to ask this on a Stack Exchange site.

comment Correct procedure and cost repair BMW timing chain (BMW 318ti)
My point in my comment -- which I don't seem to have expressed clearly -- was that there's no inherent reason for the previous owner to have replaced the chain at 86k. Thus, it's indicative of a possible problem, something the purchaser should be aware of and maybe investigate for related issues.

I don't seem to have spoken clearly. My thought was not that you should worry about replacing it again, but that there may be an important reason, which you need to know about, for the previous owner to have replaced the chain. There's no reason -- again, AFAIK -- under normal usage for him to have needed to do so; thus to my mind it's a suspicious detail in the car's history. There could be other problems that are related but either latent or just plain unfixed.

Find out why the chain was replaced. As far as I know, a BMW's timing chain shouldn't generally need replacement anywhere near 86k.
