    I just know difference simply.

    vlan-group can create self-ip.

    and virtual-wire can`t create self-ip.

    that difference cause difference result.

    1) virtual-wire can`t health check.

    -> to do HC, you have to using other interface and considering lots of things.

    2) vlan-group function is basically arp-proxy architecture. transparent was little different.

    -> If your L2 layer knowledge was poor, very hard to trouble shooting.

    3) virtual-wire feature support over i5600.(not correct bigip 5000 series support too.)

    If you have other question, let`s discuss!
