X5 Vanos codes

Hi
I have a 05 X5 4.4l. i got some codes.
2A84 DME Inlet VANOS 2
2A89 DME Exhaust VANOS 2
2E9F DME oil-condition sensor (oil light comes on and goes off)
29CC DME Combustion misfires several cylinders
29D1 DME combustion misfire cylinder 5
29D2 ------------------//------------------------ 6
29D3 -------------------//----------------------- 7
I swapped the solenoids after i cleaned them from bank 1 to bank 2, cleared the codes, but after like 5-10 sec. these 2 codes came back:2A84, 2A89. I also tested the solenoids while they were out, 12v on the pins, clicked nicely all 4 of them.
This problem started suddenly while i was driving uphill. Engine lost power, i had to pull over. Let it sit for about 1-2 min. and than start it. Still misfired, and check engine light was blinking as i accelerated.
Also, when i got the car (2 weeks ago), was very low on oil, i mean low. I poured in 6 quarts and it is barely on minimum....
Any advise will be greatly appreciated

thanks for the replay.
Difference between my car and the one in this post is that i did not have any knocking noise. After i switched the solenoids from bank1 to bank2, the engine seems to run better. Still when i push the gas it hesitates for a couple of seconds. Plus the idle is at 500-600 rpm, and you can feel the car trembling.
I checked the voltage at the vanos, on all 4 is 10.5v with the engine running. Plus when i drive it now, the check engine light will not blink like before. Still on though
Did a scan with a P code reader.
These two codes pooped up. P0021, P0024.
Could this be a cam position sensor ?
I did an engine flush, and new oil and filter.
And there is
2A1B DME Tank Cap
2A15 DME Fuel tank ventilation system and purge air system , minor leak
can these cause the low idle ?
thanks

looks to me in the link that the vanos may have suffered damage from a low oil condition
idk... you could change the cam position sensor... and see
