Valve cover gasket replacement...

I'll be replacing the gasket this coming weekend. While I have the cover off is there anything else I should be doing, replacing or looking out for? My e36 is a 1995 325is with 230 000 Kms.

I had my timing chain and sproket replaced cause they were pretty worn out.

There should be a gasket set that you can get that would have all of the gaskets to do while you are in there.
