Anyone want to give a hand with Vanos Seals?

So after some research, I believe the issue with my car is the vanos seals. Is there anyone in the Lehigh Valley area that would want to give me a hand? I think it's something I could DIY but I wouldn't mind having someone with knowledge there to supervise.

I'm located in Allentown, PA but would be willing to come to you (if your not too far) if you'd rather do it that way.

try to hit up Dafoe on here, he has done the valve adjustment on my M3 a few times as well as replace/rebuilt my Vanos.

He is in Frederick MD and travels some but LV may be a bit far, possibly come to MD or somewhere in between.
