    Hi all, happy new year to you all.

    I have a 520ies se 2003 170bhp manual.

    i have a small problem with the car and looking for ideas where to start.

    Firstly what a car its brill, only one minor fault using oil.

    it seems to smoke on overrun when coming off motorways and coming up to roundabouts.

    i cant see no smoke when travelling in town, but not saying it is or its not.

    just looking for ideas.

    i read that the ccv are common problems?, my car has done 107k, so not much for this type of engine.

    I topped the oil up the about 3 weeks ago, and the oil light for top up came on yesterday

    I have only had the car a few weeks, any ides would be great
