Hey guys...got a question. I have a 97 328IS ...when the car is running there is a little smoke that constantly comes out of the exhaust. I dont mean black smoke. And the car is not burning oil. I know when the car is cold this is expected, but should it go away once the car warms up?

white smoke is fine, and quite normal in cooler temps
