The only comfort I take in this is that since it only smokes at idle, I can rule-out most mechanical-failures, like valve guides/seals, piston-rings, etc etc. It must certainly be attributable to the CCV / Oil Separator system.
I'm working on it this weekend, and I'll update then.
This issue has been beaten to death - there are many opinions - but in my opinion you start with the obvious - a quick search on any forum will bring up all kinds of info (the N62 is in 545s,550s,650s,750s and more - all with the same issue) But here's some links:
