starting issue...

I wonder if the oil smoke/potential CCV issue had anything to do with the low battery. My wife tried to start the car earlier in the day and couldn't get it to crank. I don't know how much effort she put into it, but the car sat in the driveway until the next day when I went out to start it (and that's when I noticed the startup smoke). It did take quite a bit of cranking before it started....

Long story short, a new battery has been installed and I'm keeping a close eye on the oil level and exhaust pipes. I will say cudos to BMW on the OEM battery....it was the original, in service since late 2004.
