Anything else I should have done during N54 oil pan gasket replacement?

I'm getting my oil pan gasket replaced on my N54 135i (76,000 miles) because it's leaking. I've read DIYs and noticed that the process is pretty involved. Is there anything else I should have the shop do while they're down there?

Water pump & thermostat are right there...
Maybe a fresh set of motor mounts

Thanks. I had the water pump replaced a couple of years ago when it failed.

I asked about the motor mounts and they will check them to see if they need replacing.

Let me know what they find......I am at exactly the same mileage as you and also have a leaky oil pan.

Debating replacing the motor mounts.

Just got the car back. The motor mounts looked good. They did change the control arm bushings as they were showing cracks.

Friend of mine had a good point that I should have upgraded to the M control arm bushings while they were there. But it's more than I wanted to spend on this anyway.

Go ahead and change the o-ring for the oil level sensor as well.
