yeah I know lo!! This is the 3rd time I have been there and I told them there is smoke coming from the right exhaust, only does it on warm up (sometimes at the stop light) an does not doe this while driving. 1st & 2nd time they stated it was condensation (never seen blue condensation ) I also stated a bit of smoke coming from the lefts side of the motor exactly where the turbo is...this possibly could be a valve cover leak. So this technician found all of this out by looking at my car for 30 mins, he had to take the strutt bar off and hannaman lip he stated, guess what it was not taken off and least the lip was not that I know. He may have taken the strutt brace and engine cover off but that is it. Going to call him in a few and get a exact reason for his BS therory.
