Exclamation Valve stem seal changed, water decreases too much.

Hi Guys,

iam a new bimmer, I just got my e90 320i 2008 (n46n) two weeks ago and I experienced a valve stem seal failure, so decided to pay $1600 changing them with a punch of seals,
after I received the car back the car is very powerful, smooth and quite engine sound, really big difference.

but, i have a little (i hope) problem that is the water is decreasing, like every day i have to top up with like half liter of water, there is no any leak found from my eyes, but there is a lot of water coming out of the exhaust of the car, what that could be?
i asked the workshop they told me that is a healthy engine to drip water out of the exhaust, but where is my water go ?? !!!!!!

and also i got a smell of fuel from the exhaust, is that normal ?

sorry for my English, as it is not my mother tongue.

does the N46 have an oil filter housing gasket issue?

This would be better off posted in the general section - this section is specific to the N52, and many members are from the US where we never had the N46. You'd have a better chance of somebody with knowledge of the N46 seeing it in General.
