My name is Cannon, im from Portsmouth
I recently sold my 400bhp 200sx s14a BN drift car and stepped into the world of German motoring in an attempt to grow up
However I have noticed that on my 2002 745i v8 e65 bmw when the car is sat idle for a while and then i pull away i get a puff of smoke out the rear the size depends on the time idle.. (car has a full bmw SH and has just ticked 95k miles on it)
but after being sat for about 10 minutes in traffic today and then putting my foot down in sport mode i managed to create what can only be described as a wall of white/grey smoke behind me
now ive had a v8 range rover in the past and ive owned car before where the head gasket has been on its way out, but apart from the smoke there are no signs of this (i.e creamed oil etc)
just wondering what you guys think it could be, I have been researching all the bmw forums to locate an answer and to be honest dont want to go to BMW and get charged a fortune for someone to just say you have bought a dog
anybody else on here had issues with the 745i e65's smoking on pull away???
only had the car 2 weeks and it doesnt seem to have lost any oil and apart from the smoke its a joy to drive and be in (got alot of the extras including the air cooled seats etc)
but wondering if its worth me getting an oil and filter service done on it and getting anything else checked like breather pipe etc?
Many thanks in advance for any help
