e90 325i removing smoke at startup?

Hi,
I just bought a 2009 325i lci, tonite i started the car after 2 weeks, i noticed smoke coming out of the exhaust for a while at start up & eventually stopped after i drove the car, is it something i should be worried about? never heard of a petrol car smoking like that on start up. Could it be steam that was coming out from the exhaust as it rained here heavy today? i m mistaken the steam as smoke??
Thanks..

could be just the condensation in the exhaust if it was a cold morning and the car has been left over night?

My C63 smokes on some cold starts and its common apparently. No idea about 325i though.
