Another VANOS seals failure

I got an 06 with 28K miles and the VANOS seals have failed. If BMW USA doesn't cover it as goodwill, this will be the last BMW I'll ever own. I'll let you know what they say but the bill would be $3800, for a rebuilt unit.

What was your outcome? Did you do the fix or did the dealer? How much did it cost? How long did it take?
Thanks for adding the forum!
