I just did my vcg & vanos seals two days ago @ 123700kms. Following these two diy, it was step-by-step. With a few breaks it was an all day affair. Also found that my water pump was leaking in the process, but I had the fan off so it was a good time for it to happen.

btw - shops will quote four hours labour, so $320 is reasonable. The valve cover gasket should be replaced @ the same time as well as a few other gaskets. The above links have the full list of parts.
