maybe he was a previous Porsche owner...changing timing belts on a 944 is a constant concern for owners.

Default You also have to consider...

that he may have owned or knows about the well known M20 motor that BMW produced and provided in many of the U.S. 3 and 5 series. It was known as the "crasher" motor for the very reason of having a timing belt instead of the chain. Boy did BMW learn their lesson. So, give the guy a little mercy.
