Around about the 100k mark yes, also:
coolant pipes, esp the little one at the rear of the heads.
PCV valve at the rear of the intake manifold ( if all of a sudden you get a puff of smoke out of the exhaust dont panic its this valve)
Thats most of the common ones plus the ones that have been already done, also get the gearbox serviced if its an auto even though there is a sticker saying "life time sealed" this means BM warranty time which is 100k, so get it done, fluid and filter, if you are a diy'er I have instructions.
Sorry if I have put you off but you need to know.

Yes, it is a dealer part although I did see one on Ebay last month, its not expensive, I just bought one for mine and it cost £43.00 from the dealer, which is the best way to go you know you have the correct genuine one and it will fit perfectly and work.
# 2 in the diagram, although it shows seprerate parts in the diagram, they now come as a complete unit and make sure you buy the gasket too #10
