Considering your first comment about affordability; there is no point in entertaining the thought of "rebuilding" an engine unless you are prepared to spend a considerable amount of money - tells me you are already aware of the cost associated to this. Labor is free if you have the time; parts are not..
Get an engine stand -preferable- and buy a gasket set. this will "freshin" up the engine's appearance. Otherwise if you start replacing stuff the $$$$ adds up very quickly. You'll be looking to spend 100-200 for an engine stand and 100-200 gaskets and a few bucks for paint and cleaning supplies.

I think I've had 18 bmw's in 6 years.
