I agree with Snowsled7. Here is a video of a bad vanos unit.

Is this what it sounds like? This vanos unit obviously needs to be rebuilt. In the stage of early failure, they just sound like marbles in a metal can, usually just with revving the engine.

Hope this helps.
Most problems are usually something simple !
