WOW! That really sucks!
The part numbers I list is for an 07 328i e90, not sure what yours is but you can double check to verify.
Eccentric shaft sensor 11-37-7-524-879
Eccentric shaft sensor gasket/seal 11-12-7-559-699
Valve/cylinder cover gasket 11-12-7-582-245
Valvetronic motor gasket 11-12-7-552-280
Shop around for the best prices, as I said previously, in the link provided at the bottom of the original post is where I found it cheapest.
As for the plug, no I did not change it out, it crossed my mind but I haven't found one in quick searches. I cleaned it the best I could with MAF sensor cleaner (all I had on hand) and blew it out a little with a can of compressed air. If I cannot find a new plug, I will be cleaning it out with electronics cleaner once again when I get back under the covers to do some other things.
