Mein Auto: 2007 bmw x3 3.0d
X3 white smoke

Been having some issues with my 2007 X3 3.0d.
Started billowing white smoke from the exhaust recently without any noticeable drop in performance.
immediately put it into the local garage who have had it for a week or so.They have said that the DPF was showing 21 psi which they thought was the issue and have managed to clear it to 6 PSI but the issue is still there.
I have had it back over the weekend and have found that when driving around the town the white smoke is very noticeable, but when on the open road the smoke disappears.
The garage has discounted a turbo problem/head gasket but had to clear the erg valve which had a large build up.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
