Set marks on a 2004 bmw 330i timing chain

There aren't any. If you are asking this question, you probably shouldn't be attempting to remove or replace the chain. You must have a special tool that sets the sprockets in the correct location and then mounts the chain and sprockets on the car together as a set. If you don't do this and try to guess, the engine will be severely damaged and probably will never run again. It is what is called an interference fit and if it is not timed correctly will smash up the internal components.
