E36General discussion and technical help for (E36) 1992-1999 3 series cars. 318, 323, 325, 328.
i am too lazy to see if i wrote belt or chain... i always write belt, though i know e36 does have a chain.
but, 7 hours? noo, only if its a noob mechanic. for a bmw mechanic that has done it a few times, should NOT take that long.. it too me a few more hours than that, and i had NO idea what i was doing... with cars... you sometimes have to just do it..... if you are determined, you can do anything
Ok, read the part I underlined carefully

All data is a computerized program that gives estimates
Umnitza now provides a mechanic to install all parts ordered right in the box! It's their new "Total customer service program" that will eliminate all the haters and keep incompetents from breaking **** and blaming the vendor! When you are all set simply call INS and they will pick him up free of charge.
its called all data, tis a databse for cars, has tons of info, wiring diagrams, etc etc etc, and it tells you how long it takes typically to do a job, because sometimes mechanics need it if they see a car that they have never worked with before
like for instance one of my bros audis, in order to change the thermostat, you have to take apart the timing, while a normal thermostat job is what, 15-30 mins, so if someone pulled up in that audi the mechanic wouldnt say ok it'll be done in 15-30 mins when you have to redo the whole timing
