Residual oil in the exhaust system? How did it get there? Seems odd as oil doesn't typically produce white smoke.

I believe that model year X1 is based on the older E9x platform which is generally considered to be less reliable than the F3x platform upon which the 320i is based. However I would recommend...

Hmmm, where have I heard those words of wisdom before. Oh yeah:

Strongly disagree with this statement. Right or wrong people think of BMW as more upscale than Camaros.

I have to disagree. When twenty something year olds want one that's basically the definition of boy racer. You like the look of the Camaro? Fine, that's your preference. It's not a bad car…I have...

I like to drive but performance isn't everything (says the X5-M owner). If the boy racer look is your thing so be it…Camaro is great for that.

I can't recall a single fuel related issue with any of the vehicles I've ever owned. Given the amount of driving that occurs in the USA I doubt fuel is as "****" as you state.

White smoke in the exhaust typically means water is entering the combustion chamber(s). Typically that is the result of a bad head gasket.

I get the impression he's just curious and not because he thinks it'll be worth more when he goes to sell it (he already bought it).

What would be interesting to see, and requested in the other thread, was his average speed for his BMW. To my knowledge he never supplied that piece of information. Might explain a lot.

When I had to make this decision I opted to repair rather than replace. The repair is a lot less hassle and the risk of an improper replacement favored repair.
