did you replace 15 gromets?? you didn't answer if you did.... vanos seals didn't do anything for me. did it last week and put on about 600kms.. no difference.
make sure you replace gromets and put on rtv on half moons and vanos contact line. tighten the bolts in X pattern starting from the middle. 10NM. and make sure the surfaces are well cleaned on the contact surface when applying new baskets
