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?
bmwrench has an excellent reputation, and is on the east coast.

Dunno the cost yet, it is what it is--e.g., genuine BMW exhaust valves are $150 each.

I'm for replacing what needs replacing.
