As for the VANOS oil line, it looks like I'm on my own for that. East Bay BMW said the list I posted here earlier was comprehensive as far as what they would replace under the warranty. If it's not on the list, they won't cover it.
Get the VANOS oil line denial in writing. Then I'd contact the California Air Resources Board at (800)242-4450 and tell them they denied you and they have it in writing. They will mediate and I think you will get it covered. The law seems pretty clear that any parts associated with emissions related parts are covered. So if the VANOS is covered, I would think the related hose is covered.
