Hi there,

Blueish smoke is oil burning, you can have a few test done to determine where the problem lies, rule of thumb is if it smokes on stat up and clears it is usually valve stem seal& or guides, smoking on deceleration ( High vacuum) rings or guides & seals general smoking rings. Ask your service center to test and report.
