I need your help please!

My BMW 735i 2002 model automatic only done 85000 miles has started discharge white smoke from exhaust when it warm up. It is fine to drive, no smoke once I hit the motorway, but only puff of smoke when I stop at traffic and when I accelerate, I have noticed a steam also comes out from the exhaust. No leak of oil at all.but when I have checked the spark plugs I have notice some oil around them! Any idea please? Like I said the car runs perfect. I have changed the oil and the rest of it , but still have the same problem? Can you help, please

Sounds like a valve cover gasket.

I've seen some people here get it done at an Indy Shop for around $500. But it also could be a leaky spark plug tubes. Its hard to say without a proper diag

Nothing is showing at the car saying is problem, it was running a bit low in oil but once I have changed the oil nothing changed, car is running fine but the smoke comes and go, but sometimes very bad if I stop in trafic.
