    you'll regret that it for any reason the chain or tensioners needs to be serviced ( Nissan Stagea for example )
    sometimes pays to consider worst case scenarios with used cars . So many people get caught out and face thousands of $ of repairs .

    I've been told they last a lot longer but eventually start wearing out, causing the engine to run more and more inefficiently. If the chain ever breaks, it it can do major damage to the motor.

    OK

    I have narrowed it down to two possible models but I not some advice.

    IS250 between 70k and 110k on the clock, newest being 2010
    OR
    IS350 between 80k and 110k on the clock, newest being 2008

    Faster/bigger engine, vs k's, vs age
    thoughts?
