Thanks. In the event that I need new seats, do you recommend sending off to bmwrench? He seems to be the go-to airhead machinist in the country.
What can I expect to pay for 4 valves, guides, seats, etc? I'll replace the valves myself, just need a machinist to press the seats in the heads.
Should I be looking to do the whole she-bang as this inmate did?

Is it good practice to replace all the valves, guides and seats at once, since the engine is at 56k miles?
