Hi guys I am in the market for a new used bmw X5, today i went to have a look at an 2004 X5 4.4L. I did an inspection and when everything looked very good I asked to rev the engine and look at the exhaust while it would rev and start up. This is what i saw.

Also worth noticing, it only came from the left exhaust pipe. What should I do? Is this an easy fix? Or should I turn around and never look back?

Maybe also worth noting, this was after the test drive, when the engine was at temperature.

Thanks guys, i would really appreciate some feedback :)!_a_

probably needs new valve stem seals replacement. Typical cost to fix it is about $2.5k -$3.5k .... Yeap about 3 thousands. Ask seller to fix it before you buy.
