    Smokey W204 C63

    Gutted, just took my car out a run and all off a sudden started pouring smoke out the back. It seems to be burning oil. Got home and wasn't as bad. Back end of the car is covered in oil and car is stinking. Anyone experienced this? It's under warranty so will be on the phone to MB tomorrow.
