If it's a new chain that's needed how did they figure that out exactly without removing the old one?

If it's the tensioner that sounds like a lot.

What symptoms have you got which means they are saying the chain itself needs changing?

Chains used to go slack and need replacing.

New chains (on the S2k and the new VVTi Toyotas) are supposed to last "forever", but I doubt it.

What sort of mileage has been done on the car?
