I agree with DIY statement, but do hear you, not all can.
But why did you get the BMW perform the service?
Fina a local BMW shop (independent BMW service shop) and they will save you about half, from what I see so far.

Any who, I digressed.
The next two big things:
- alternator bracket gasket (about 900 outside of the dealer), this $7.00 gasket will fail if not over time then by the time you get closer to and pass 80k
- valley pan gasket (parts alone are over 600 but if you choose better parts then 900). This will fail by the time you are kitting about 80 to 90K (you will see coolant dripping from back of transmission, especially when you park up the hill.)

Good luck to you.
