Mein Auto: 540i/6 E39
Question Overlaping Engine Jobs?

Well my friends, it's time for my 540i to get a few major repairs done to the motor. A few weeks ago I took my ride to a local indie BMW mechanic for a diagnostic. Most of the things on this list I can't DIY since I don't have access to a wide array of tools.

Let me give you a little background to my inquiry. My M62TU has a startup rattle and seems like it's down on power on low end acceleration. Thus suggesting my VANOS seals are bad as well as the timing chain guides are bad.

My question for you is: should I get the oil valley pan gasket, valve covers, and vanos seals done at the same time?

How much do you think is fair for my mechanic to charge me?

I've already taken care of replacing my MAF
