Out of curiosity, what model year is your car? I was under the impression that the VANOS pump gear issues only affected cars until circa early-mid 2006 build?

Itís a petty straight forward job if you just doing the bearings.
Iím going a full engine upgrade including vanos gears, vanos like line, oil squirters, oil pump chain tensioner and a full 100km service. Parts in total $3000 AUD. Not so bad considering I payed Audi $1700 for a 50,0000 service that was just a oil change and filters.
