I have a 2001 318 Ci with a leaky head gasket , since im about to fix it what other parts should I change seeing the motor is gonna be open? its a pretty high mileage car with poor maintenance from what i can tell. It just clocked over 250.000k kms. So far I've done the water pump and the oil filter housing gasket on it. Any suggestions for what to look for and change when doing the head gasket? Im fairly new at this, so be patient with me hehe..

The obvious gaskets - rocker cover, exhaust manifold, inlet manifold etc. Usually a good oppprtunity to replace any auxiliary belts also. If you haven’t planned to already, it’s always worth getting the head skimmed and crack tested. Vanos seals are probably worth a pop if it has vanos (not sure but someone will know)!
