Mein Auto: 320cd 2005
Bmw 320cd 2005. My cars burning oil. Any ideas what could be the problem.

Since I've had my car I've had to top the oil up on 4 occasions in 2 months. Also I've noticed that on occasions blue smoke comes from the exhaust when pulling off.
Someone mentioned to me that it could be the turbo that's on it's way out. Could there be any other causes for this other than the turbo being on its last legs?
All help will be highly appreciated

Bimmerfest is a US-based forum. BMW never sold any diesel E46s in this country, so they`re pretty much unknown around here. Are there any Euro Forums that you could enquire on ?
