The dealer recently replace my VC and OFH gaskets. The only indication I had was the oil was down a pint between changes. Now it stays full.

I have an extended warranty, so the cost wasn't an issue. The dealer charged BMW a bunch of money nearly two grand for the work. If I didn't have the warranty, I would have let it leak. It didn't amount to more than a minor drip.

OK looks like you have all the bases covered except for one. I did not have one of these but I could have used the piece of mind it would have given me plus not have to check the back of the gasket a million times over to make sure it did not curl up during the install which would have completely wasted my installation and money...plus these are cheap:
