    I own a 2004 (August) BMW X5 with 120K miles on it. Few weeks ago it started to smoke from passenger side exhaust pipes. Smoke is gray/white in color and smells really bad (like badly burned fuel or something). Thing is that when you start the car, on cold, it does not smoke at all for like 5-10...

    My e53 sounds like a jet engine or that it's supercharged, although that would be nice, it's not normal and the power isn't there. I suspect the cooling aux radiator fan to be the root cause. The fan doesn't start up with air con on but I've got voltage at the plug. The mains are 12v dc and the...
