Alright guys, just wondering if any on the forum has had a similar problem. I have a 2000 X reg 330ci coupe. It is on the high side miles wise, and has in the last week started smoking at the exhaust in a noticeable way. It kicked off with a large amount of smoke initially, but since then has calmed down a lot, but is still noticeable. It happens more pronounced at the point of acceleration from standing or low revs in low gear. I have been keeping an eye on the temp and oil levels (as i always do) and all seems well except the occasional smoke. Cheers, B

I've got a 99 328ci with 37K on it and on hard acceleration on a cold day it looks like smoke at the rear but had it all checked out and its steam I've been assured.

Alright guys, had the motor for ages now, and it's done 135000 miles. Colour is off white with a blueish ting. Had a sniff of it and can't smell anything like burning just a bit petroly (not surprisingly). Wondered bout steam, it has not just been on the really cold days, but this was when it started happening.

Getting the codes read for the engines ECU would be a good start off point, this will rule out a cam sensor fault e.t.c
