Double-VANOS with low-pressure operation
With its extremely short control times, variable double-VANOS camshaft management perfects the cylinder charge cycle, reducing charge losses and improving engine output torque and response, as well as fuel economy and emission management.

Developed especially for the new eight-cylinder, the M double-VANOS now featured on the new engine requires no more than normal engine oil pressure in order to operate at maximum speed. As a function of load and engine speed, this sophisticated unit consistently sets the optimum valve angle synchronised to the ignition timing and injection volume.

Unless you are beating the crap outta of it on the track I say drive it and dont worry

What about the DCT tranny? My dealer told me the extended warrantee does not cover the DCT. Was I misinformed or is there a reason why they don't extend the warrantee on the DCT?
