Why I was surprised it was only a year after the VCG was done.
Glad to hear you figured it out. Was the VCG crispy and nasty? Or was the actual valve cover just too loose?

Shame to hear about the oil housing gasket.. mine went caput a couple months ago too. Ugh

VCG was non nasty, oil housing was a mess. Had the entire ccv done at same time.
Just changed the DISA myself yesterday and cleaned the MAF. Disa was gone, glad I changed it. Car has amazing power and throttle response now.

Sorry for the late reply, the DISA valve (actuator module as BMW calls it) swap was a breeze. Removed the CAI intake hoses to give me some clearance. Disa comes out with two bolts - my only challenge was the strut tower brace in the way.
Bought the part from the dealer in the US with BMW discount.
