Someone said that a chain can break with sudden acceleration and at high RPMs. What do you think of this. Now THIS concerns me! I floor it often. My M104 motor has 95k miles with relatively consisent oil changes throughout it's like, and VERY consistent the past 25k miles (since I got it). I know we have been over this before... but is the M104 motor common to chain failure? and more so with high rpms..!? Thanks a bunch.

BTW, I'm 19, and this Mercedes is my first car. And damn, am I sold! Thank god many of my friends drive german cars! Not too many people with Hondas that I know, I think I'd die, because I cannot STAND rice rockets. WHAT JUNK!
