Here's a long shot senecio...maybe you have bad valve seals which has been the cause of the random smoke. A totally different issue just started when your heard a knock then Tap tap tap. Sounds like you might have dropped part of a valve seat or something punched a hole in the piston. That would explain the noise, misfire now (no compression) and the oil. Maybe you can borrow a camera from someone and send it down there. Adam

You could be right, but I am not hoping for the Worst right now. My wife is not happy with second BMW with engine problem again. So if it is that bad, this could be my last one. Bad seal at 136k, if that is the issue what a shame.
