Lightbulb Camshaft Bearing Ledge Problem?

My car has been shuddering and running rough for a few months now as many of you will know. Until recently there have been no codes raised. Last week I finally got a code: 2A87 Exhaust VANOS Camshaft Faults.

Bought 2 new VANOS Solenoids and replaced both yesterday morning (at a cost of 135). Unfortunately this has not fixed the issue. Although the car did feel better, it is still shuddering at WOT

Looking at these codes it could also be the Camshaft Bearing Ledge is grooved. Has anyone had this problem in the UK?? It sounds like it will be reassuringly expensive

It sounds like a pretty common problem:
