Read through a couple of threads where the mention of 'noisy VANOS' system. Can someone please elaborate more about this noise.

I hear a noise coming from what seems to be around the center console, where the navi DVD slot is. It's a staticky noise and only when I'm about half throttleish. The noise is not already there. Is this, what is this?

That is the vanos noise. It comes from the vanos and makes it's way to the interior. It's a very common buzzing sound that is annoying but a ton of us have heard it. Doing a vanos bleeding and adaptation seemed to help mine.

This is something I can do myself or a dealership will have to handle?

You have to go to the dealer or an independent shop. They need to use their scan tool to perform this. It takes about 20 min, and make sure you ask them to do it 3-4 times to ensure you get all the air out.
