Personally, I stick with Bosch.

Check out FCP Euro, they have a few suspension kits from quality stuff to budget stuff.

my bmw 740 is a 1998 that means it has single vanos correct?

When im stuck in traffic and the vanos is trying to save some gas i feel a bit a jittering and rough idle.

What could this mean? im ordering a oil separator valve.

Honestly, take it to a shop you trust and have them look it over, rather than you throwing money at it hoping it fixes.

There is only so much we can guess over the internet.
