It is a simple fix if you can pin point the leak around the vanos.
I have thought about getting rid of mine too, but the repairs are much less than the resell depreciation value. As much as it stresses me with all the problem, it still puts a smile on me everytime I drive it.

Back on subject: parts can be found here or bimmerspecialist. Its just a couple o-ring on each vanos and a 10mm bolt on each. While you're at it, clean the vanos. Your car will thank you and in return it will provide a pleasant drive.
