This is a good discussion

Your wife's sounds like my buddy Andrew's, which has loud VANOS and some discoloration under the cap. They consume around the same amount of oil too. I bet their build dates are close.

Mine is like yours, spotless under the cap, VANOS is silent.

Only code I have is the EVAP solenoid, which I have to change out. I did have a CPS die on me (passenger side exhaust cam) shortly after buying it.

Mine has 160,000 on it now, I've owned it since 140,000.

Here's a shot of under my cap:
