Maintenance list while replacing clutch

So I have been researching and compiling a list of various maintenance items to complete while I have my car on the lift and the transmission out for a clutch replacement. My car is a 2005 330i ZHP 6sp with 177k miles. None of the items on the list with the exception of valve cover gasket and OFHG have been replaced. I'd love some feedback on the items I've decided to replace and see if there are any other things I should consider while I'm in there. This is a big project for me, and I just want to make sure I cover all my bases while everything is apart. Debating whether or not it's worth replacing my O2 sensors or wheel bearings since they aren't necessarily giving me any problems as far as I can tell.
Main questions: Should i use the brass throw out bearing? Should I purchase a rear main seal that is already mounted? Is it worth replacing o2 sensors and wheel bearings? Anything else I should add to the list or change?

Things I have purchased already:
1) LUK Clutch Kit (pressure plate, clutch disc, release bearing, pilot bearing, clutch fork, and alignment tool) (6243575000)
2) LUK dual mass flywheel (LUK DMF053)
3) Schwaben flywheel lock kit (014433SCH01A)
4) Rear Main seal (I've heard this can be a pain and to purchase a seal that is already mounted) (11142249533)
5) BMW Crank Seal Cover Gasket (11141432240)
6) Self locking hex nut (x3) (07129900047)
7) Exhaust gasket (x2) (18107502346)
8) Pivot pin (21511223328) - I'm considering buying a brass one instead of the OEM plastic
9) Shifter arm bushing x2 (25111222015)
10) shifter bushing (x2) (25117519670)

Things on the list to purchase and replace:
1) *Sachs Clutch slave cylinder (21526785966)
2) *Motor and transmission mounts (ECS 11811140985KT1)
3) *Flex disc kit with center support mount and guibo (ECS 26117511454KT)
4) *Oil pan gasket (11131437237)
5) *Brass throw out bearing (ECS 013236ECS01A)
6) *Various parts to complete the shifter rebuild (23411466134, 25111220439, 25111221579, 25111221580, 25111222451, 25111434194, 25111220600, 25117571899, 51438229759(x6)

Others:
