Pelican order--questions

So below is what I had Pelican work up for me today. 3 questions.
First--CCV...should I just change it and if so, is it a complete PITA to replace? (don't want to change it just to change it)
Second--Seems Pelican's DISA is $100 more than OEMBimmerparts.com DISA...how can this be (both listed as OEM).
Last questions is..I thought I read somewhere on here that when changing the valve cover gasket you should NEVER use anything but the OEM nut seals which are $2.00 a piece--true?
*Also VANOS oil line to this list (just has oil around the fitting like most do).
ANYTHING ELSE YOU CAN THINK OF SINCE I WILL HAVE THE ENTIRE THING TORN APART--maybe the oil filter housing gasket (even though I just had the oil changed 2000 miles ago). I will change the complete cooling system late this summer as well.

Valve cover gasket, go OEM. Only OEM.

The oil filter housing gasket can mean one of two things, the O-ring that sits between the filter tube and the cap for the filter, or the actual gasket that sits against the engine block where it connects with the very bottom part of the oil filter. If that hasn't been replaced, you'll want to replace it as well. The O-ring will come with every OEM filter you buy, so you should always change that every time you change your oil.

If the DISA is ~100 difference and you're sure they're both OEM, go the cheaper one. I've seen bigger discounts on OEM parts than $100 for various parts.

Make sure you check your front control arm bushings.

Goodbye, sweet prince.

Yes, change your CCV and related hoses. I have a 2001 and changed my CCV system last year. It basically crumbled apart. Oh yeah, and it is a PITA, but it's not too bad. Just don't give up easily. Also watch alot of videos. Otto's BavAuto CCV video is pretty good to prepare yourself on "blindly" assembling the part under the manifold

I just finished removing my intake manifold and replacing the gasket today. The CCV would be MUCH easier if you take off the intake manifold, but would be much more work since you have to take off a bunch of lines. If you want to go as far as taking off your intake manifold, then by all means do it. I found a bunch of cracked hoses on Part #5 (one was cracked and the other one completely broke and fell off) These were probably contributing to my increased LTFT over the past few months. Would have never found it without taking off the intake manifold
