So just looking for advice really - car does about 18 miles a day approximately 12-15 mins run time x 2. Tops speed about 60 mostly straights but broken up by a few (4) roundabouts. So accelerating braking - getting 25-26 mpg.
Car is fully serviced at BMW on the button - just saying this as all scheduled bits done, right oil, filters etc. (hopefully)
When I start the car in the morning get a puff/ cloud of mostly white hint of blue smoke goes after 1-2 seconds and the runs okay. Get in the car for return journey sometimes the same but not always noticeable from inside the car. It never happens when the cars warmed up and restarted.
That said it had a service about 6 weeks ago and I checked the fluids today - topped up the washer, coolant bang on the mark, oil top up of about 1/4 to half a litre but there was some mayo around the oil filler cap - not overly worried by this as I've read before that this can happen if the car has a lot of shorter journeys - is this right?
Next took the car for a run up a motorway class a road for about 14 miles to a tescos got some stuff on the way back accelerated hard upto the auto point of gear change in sports mode, onto the a road and there was quite a bit of white smoke.
Got upto cruising speed slowed a bit and then into sports accelerated again no smoke - did this two or three times nothing. No loss of performance no overheating.
Any suggestions? anything to check?
