In the startup video there seems to be some vapor after start up. Any hints of the VSS heading out? How many miles on the tires?

In my opinion, all N62 motors will need VSS replacement at some point. I do not believe these were ever changed. Once they are changed though it should last almost the life of the vehicle. Creeping up on 80k I would project it as a maintenance item needed in the future. It does not smoke on start up or normal driving conditions. I've only really seen it 'smoke' in extreme heavy traffic. When I replaced the original CCV hoses (3) and the pressure regulators, there was oil present. Replaced with OEM parts.

Tires roughly have 10-15k miles on them.
