If you want to swap Vanos units--Dr Vanos rebuild their units using the Besain seals--but if your going to all the work of swaping out the unit your far enough along at that point to just replace the seals yourself. Your looking at about 130 bucks plus your labor to do the job. The OEM seals start to go bad at the first 10k miles--you just don't know it until you replace them--then you will see what all the fuss is about
