You dont normaly need to do the cam timeing to do VANOS seals. Are you talking about the cam holders? When I did my '98 528 VANOS I bought the holder tools, but I dont think it really was nessessary. There is a photo someplace online of someone using two adjustable wrenchs that form an A-shape and then vice gripped together. Its really all thats needed and I wished Id saved the $90 or so bucks on the one time needed tool.
