    Typically....

    White smoke = water (head gasket failure etc)
    Blue = oil
    Black = fuel

    Did you ever find the problem with this bez? Mines doing the same. First gear, steady set off , puff of blue smoke, then fine. Little rev while stationary, small signs of blue smoke. I'm very concerned :/ left ticking over, nothing. Only noticed this after changing the pcv, do you think it could be getting any oil out of the system from the previous pcv?
