Default Oil Filter Housing Leak Repair - Anything else should be done while in there?

Hey everyone. I have an 09 528i that is getting the infamous oil filter housing leak addressed soon. While the intake manifold is off when they're changing the oil filter housing gaskets, is there anything else I should replace while they're in there?

The additional jobs they are so far going to do:
- oil change
- coolant change
- front upper radiator hose to thermostat
- aux belt
- intake manifold gaskets


Here's a list of parts I'm providing for this job so far. Should I include anything else?

Well I have an N54 so it's a little different.. but one year after I replaced that, I had a leaky valve cover gasket.. had I known I would have gotten any of that done when I did the walnut blasting or even that oil gasket. ...

Hello, just had my oil housing gasket replaced last week, amongst other items, $$$(06 525xi) if your cooler sits with your oil housing I recommend replacing the cooler gasket while it is off. My Indy replaced my serpentine belt as well it is recommned to replace idler pully and tensioner assembly when replacing belt. Check your transmission pan (plastic) if you can, he replaced mine had a leak, glad I found him he is excellent. Good luck!!!

Default 2008 535xi E61 Oil filter housing gasket. Update

I'm in the painful process of having the oil filter housing replaced ($800) after it leaked on the serpentine belt requiring it's replacement($500). I note that OEM parts are mentioned here and I'm wondering if there really is a difference between them and after market parts except an incredible price difference. I was told that Victor gaskets are know to fail. Suggestions? Klinger or Ajusa?

I don't know about the oil filter housing gasket but I did my belts, tensioner and idler pulley a couple years ago with all basic aftermarket and it works fine, for like $150 total for the parts.
