Mein Auto: 2002 540i Sport M Package
Cracked Head

So I recently purchased a 2000 528i for $1,000 - with 188,000 miles
In middle of completing VANOS, CCV and Cooling overhaul.
Found a old receipt from the $tealership that says
Cracked Head and Bad Head Gasket
Dated: Jan 2008 with 169,000 miles

What should I do? Does this look like the $tealership trying a quick one on Past Owner?
is this a DIY? or should I give it up and run!

Thanks for your suggestions!
