2006 330I 85k: Have to change CVV and fuel tank breather valve, what else should I do

Hey folks,
I've got a 2006 e90 with 85,000 miles.

So, turns out that I have to change out the CVV and Fuel tank breather valve. Both require removing the intake manifold and some other crap. Any recommendations on what else to change out while it's all out? I figure i'd rather have the mechanics do it all at once and save some money in the long haul.

Thanks

I'll do that, thanks. I had the oil filter gasket changed a couple of years ago. How about the starter? Never had that changed and I think it's right there.

Oh OK. Starter..nah.. dont mess with it if its not broken. I ve seen starters last over 150k miles. I recently changed mine at 145k miles. So leave it alone for now...
