Few issues with my BMW - need recommendations

Sent my car into the stealership today to get the waterpump and thermostat changed and got the following e-mail from my SA:

Here’s the recommendations for your vehicle.

When we scanned the car, there was a fault for the Vanos solenoids. These solenoids help with the operation of the camshafts and allow the valve timing to work properly. With these solenoids having a fault, the vehicle may run quite rough. $624.89

It does appear there are 2 engine oil leaks with the vehicle. Oil filter housing gasket $728.74 and oil pan gasket $1055.76.

All prices include parts, labor, and tax.
Are these changes necessary for me to make? What do you guys recommend I do here....As of right now, I've told them to go ahead with the waterpump/thermostat and I'll deal with the other things at a later time.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
