Maybe your 1M is celebrating the election of a new Pope from South America

Sorry, had to say

our turbos are cooled by the radiator water, so probably the seal is due for replacement and hence allowing the radiator water to leak into the turbos and that explains the white smoke

Probably turbo seals. Get on the n54 motor section here. Those guys have seen stuff like this over and over and will be able to help you out.

If you do need to replace the turbos you can get them for about $700 from Tischer BMW or buy RBs turbos or Vargas is now making some pretty impressive turbos too.
