    Thanks for your advice, I am planning to change the valve springs.

    But I heard from a several tuners here in the Netherlands that, in general,
    valves in two pieces (steel/st.steel) do not have a endless lifespan.
    So you understand my worries.

    Since it will be apart you may want to replace the valve springs. No need to change the valves if they are good.
