CCV is a pretty big/long job if you havent done it before. Had mine done a couple of weeks ago and took 7hrs... and my buddy is pretty handy with bmws just hasn't done that job in 3yrs and i was helping. plus a beer or two doesnt speed things up either. Some of my friends can do it in like 2hrs-3hrs. i think that my valve cover initially warped due to a bad CCV because when we did my CCV all of the 5 associated with it were broken and the CCV itself broke in half when taking it out

125K miles

Think ECS tuning has the best price for a replacement($180). Not sure how much it would be at the dealer.

Yes replace them all. Ill go grab the parts list since i just bought the kit.

11-61-7-534-237 Repair Kit(valve and the 2 hoses attached to it)
11-43-1-740-045 Dipstick O-ring
11-61-7-504-536 Return Hose
11-15-7-532-629 Vent Hose

They also tell you to get a new Dipstick with and upgraded design. i found some people modifying them to work and thats what i choose to do(saves 150$ or so)
Good luck
