1997 E420 Sport - In Need of New Low Mileage Engine

    I am trying to source a relatively low mileage engine for my 97 E420 sport. Timing chain broke on mine and caused extensive damage.
I'd sooner replace existing engine than repairing it.

oUCH!
May I ask what kind of mileage you had/have on the failed engine? Was it maintained according to specs? Were there (in retrospect) any indicators that might have led to an early diagnosis?
Reason for asking I have a '99 E430 (not the same but a very similar engine). I have only about 66K on it, but I am interested in getting the most I can out of the car. I like it very much.
