I have a 2003 745li and when I accelerate from a complete stop blueish, grey smoke comes out. Sometimes it is alot and other times it is not at all and also I have a service ingine soon light on, and the dealer BMW in Germany don't have a clue as to why it is on. They keep resetting it but it still comes on after about 20miles after I have driving it from the BMW dealer. Please help a soldier and her car. Thanks

You are burning oil, what grade of oil is being used and when was it last changed? THE SERVICE LIGHT SHOULD BE RE SET WITH A SCANNER, ARE THEY USING IT? AND DID THEY CHECK FOR ANY FAULT CODES?
