I think the vanos thing is overhyped like a lot of things... Anyway - this post might be a good starting point:

cheers mate read that before i posted, just wanted any personal experiences it'll be the 2.2 i buy seems to be the better model by all the reviews but have been tempted by a couple of 3 litres and got offered a 2.8 with 71,ooo mile on cheap(3500) if thats cheap????
thanks for replying any more tips heard the electric roofs can be a problem but i suppose alot of what ive read on road tests and reviews is guff.
