I finished mine, reading the forum it looked scary but there isn't much to it.
Take your time and remember... there are 26 screws, there is one you can't see at the bottom left. (remember 26!!!)
- Clean the gasket surface on the valve cover, degrease and then spray some tacky gasket spray at the back of the new one, it will hold in place in reassembly.
- Torque the bolts in proper sequence.
- Buy the vent tube (the one you will break trying to remove the 4 tabs or break when someone will help you push it out of the way) or make sure that your BMW dealer has it in stock.
- Buy the valvetronic plug gasket. Cheap and easy to change.

Watch a couple of videos on how to do it.
Best time to do it with the OFHG because all the injectors will be disconnected for the priming procedure.
