You say you have a week? At least pop the valve cover off and look at the VANOS tabs. If your tabs are intact and your VANOS isn't making rattling noises, then you should be fine to make your drive. If your valve cover gasket is in good shape, all you'll need to replace are some crush washers.

FYI: I had a broken tab at 120k. I caught it when I did a valve adjustment and have no idea how long it was broken... ¯\(ツ)
