Mein Auto: 2012 740i
Blue Smoke from 740i

While driving my 2012 740i home last evening, the car notified me that I was low on oil and needed to add a quart as soon as possible. I drove another mile to a stop sign and noticed the car was shaking slightly. Drove another 4 miles, to the next stop light, and the shaking was considerably worse. Drove 3 more miles to my house, parked the car for 15 minutes, and when I started the car again, the car shook even worse, idle was very rough and the car exhaust was blue smoke. The car has only 7,250 miles on it (I took delivery in May 2012). It needed to be flatbed towed to the dealer this morning. Smoke was as bad this morning when I pulled it out of the garage. No word yet from the dealer. Has anyone else experienced this problem? I will keep everyone posted on the prognosis.
