I'd need these tools for sure:

I'm not 100% certain that BMW wouldn't be a total douche nozzle and require some other special pieces once I get into it.

Suspected Bent Valves.....motor makes no compression on cylinders 1-2
it turns over smoothly by hand on the crank pulley though.....so thats why I dont suspect bottom end.

I'd have about $900 into parts/tools just to get the head off, find out nothing is wrong and then put the head back on.

The motor does have to come apart though as I've verified via the shop manual procedures and my scanner that there are no sensor related/electrical issues causing the car to not run.
