Mein Auto: 2006 BMW 330i (E90 N52)
New to BMW and car needs TLC

I recently purchased a 06 330i (N52) and it was running great then just the other week my battery light (Alternator) came on and I lost power steering. Luckily i was in a parking lot and pulled back in my spot to notice a puff of white smoke up in the air, not a lot just a little bit and I haven't driven it since I had it towed. On top of that my coolant had dumped all over the floor and my serpentine belt is out of place not sure if it's shredded. I was hoping someone here might have an idea as to what might need to be replaced so i may go ahead and do it. Thanks in advance.

How many miles on your car? Did you search this forum first to learn what usually fails and when? There's so much documented history here that one could review the service and maintenance records of a prospective purchase and get a pretty good idea what that car is. I'm assuming all the service records came with the car, correct?

I can check for a Carfax on my own but I was not given one. Its 150K and I know for sure that the head cover gasket needs to be replaced, soon the water pump and tstat, etc.
