When I had the head off of my '89 325i, at the advice of a BMW master tech, I left the exhaust and the intake on the head. It's really pretty simple to pull the stuff off the intake side, and the exhaust is easy with just pulling the 6? bolts from the downpipe/manifold joint. The only downside to this method is it's quite a grunt to lift that sucker up, and putting it back really requires a second hand to help line things up on the intake side.

When refilling the engine with coolant, be sure to leave the top hose off the radiator until coolant pours out, this really simplifies bleeding the system!
