If you really want more space you can remove the radiator support, front fan, condenser, trans cooler, etc but that is going to require ALOT of unnecessary work and recharging your AC after the job is done. You mention doing the VC's as if its a separate job even though you have to remove them to lock the cams. Remove the cooling system and go at it.
Yeah I am somewhat baffled as to why the OP has removed the engine to do timing chains and leaks. The X5 does not need to go to this level to get it done. Since its coming out then I bet the engine bay area is going to really sparkle after the reinstall.
