Finally fixed smoking problem :)

i bought a 540i and didnt notice when i bought it that at start up it smoked i googled this problem and there were 3 things that could be wrong ...
2.oil seperater
and last i read about a guy that had changed both of those things and still kept doing it after spending alot of replacing those..he opened the engine up and one of his rings was out so this made me feel like **** because he even had a video of his car at start up and it looked EXACTLY like mine !! We replaced the ccv and know the smoke is gone now i can finally start working on its looks such as rims and suspension if anyone has anything for sale and are located near houston please let me know
