I have a 2004 X5 4.4 with 12,000 miles. When I start it in the morning (after sitting all night) it blows out white/blue smoke for the first 45 seconds, then clears up. It smells like oil so I don't think it is coolant. Any ideas??

Hmmmm...how often does it do it? Only in the mornings? Or whenever you start it...after sitting awhile?

What engine size do you have?

if it happens after sitting overnight the first thing you check(other then problems that have TSB's or recalls) is your valve guides/seals. Overnight they'll allow oil to collect over the valves and it'll burn off upon startup.
