Exclamation HELP!! Blowing wall of blue smoke on my e65

Help!
Just brought a 2006 bmw 750i with only 60000 miles on it.
After a simple oil change, my car start to blow wall of blue smoke out of the exhaust as long as:
after park or stuck in traffic for 5 min, when take off, blue smoke coming out from the exhaust right away.
Sometime when idle, blue smoke also comes out. But, mostly when i sit in traffic and take off., blue smoke comes out really bad.
it is not pure blue, it's blue but more like white blue.
I know it might be valve stem seals but consider it only got 60000miles on the engine, i'm not sure that's the problem. Maybe valve cover gasket? or oil sink into spark plug?
Needs help!!!!

If this just started right after the oil change then I bet the oil is overfilled. I hope I'm right
oil in the spark plug would cause a misfire and a valve cover gasket/oil spill would cause smoke from under the hood

It sounds like valve stem seals to me. Very common problem. If you're willing to drive up to NY, I can do the repairs for you.

But only after oil change? Seems like theirs too much oil? As long as it only started after the service

Only time I've seen a blue/white smoke mix is when your piston rings start to let to much oil seep thru and burn. This is just my observation from what you have told us.
