just want to post the update on vanos. Well my car has been acting worst since I swapped solenoids around. I usually had rough idles but now it was actually shaking and choking on cruising speeds. So i went to the stealer and bought both of them and replaced them my self. Now the car runs like a swiss watch, smooth and steady. I noticed my torque has increased drastically in higher gears and I can't believe how important this vanos system is for bmw engine. Anyways they charged me $150 for each solenoid here in Canada. I could have shopped online but the problem was driving me nuts so I just went for it.
