new valve cover gasket?

hey everyone. i recently bought a 1993 535i and it is great. however, the valves need adjusting, and i plan to do it myself since i live in a hick-town with no good mechanics.

i was wondering if it is necessary for me to replace the valve cover gasket when i put the cover back on after adjusting the valves. do you think the gasket will hold together after 16 years (probably). i can order one online, but it might take a few weeks for it to arrive, and i need the car, the valves need to be adjusted asap.

one more thing, can you tell me if this site is legit? it looks to be, but if anyone who has bought there can re-assure me, that would be good.
