That is not good to have lots of water coming out of your exhaust. I would think you might have a cracked head. But that is just a guess. I would go to Mye28.com and ask there are a lot more people on that site that drive e28s.

If it is just plain water and there is no 'sweet' smell like coolant it is ok. Part of the product of combustion is water vapor that tends to condensate when it touches a cold surface. Make sure your car is running right and get it really warmed up for the test. Check your coolant reservoir and see if the level is ok.
