The Vanos line was a weep. The leak was the gasket between the oil filter housing and the block. No wonder - the machining on the face of the housing is pitiful - BMW should be ashamed. At the end of the day, it was a fairly simple fix with a few hints from the U tube video showing the repair on a 3 series sedan. And I replaced the belts while there. A good day!
