Why would a 1999 BMW M3 that was in a rollover accident have white smoke coming out of the exhaust when the car starts and after it is warmed up?

Not having anymore info. other than it was in a rollover, the engine head could be cracked and allowing coolant to get into the combustion chamber which could explain smoking at start up and after the engine is warm. Check your coolant tank for any oil residue - if there is oil in the tank, you've got a engine head problem and your best bet is to get a new head after verifing that the block isn't also damaged.

The exhaust manifold is the header that starts at the piping on the driver's side of the engine and runs back out to the exhaust.

the turbo is on the end of the exhaust manifold before the exhaust pipe starts .

No, water coming from the exhaust is normal in small amounts. The temp differences causes condensation. When the car sits, the exhaust is cold or ambiant temp. When the vehicle starts, the exhaust system warms up, causing condensation. There are actually weep holes in most mufflers to let the water out to prevent rust.

What can cause black sooty exhaust is bad valve guides. When the guides are bad oil leaks into the cylinder when the car isn't running. When the car starts it produces black exhaust.

An inlet and exhaust valves are two separate things. The inlet valve lets the fuel/ air ,ix into the cylinder. The exhaust valve opens to let the pressure out after the mix has burned, releasing the gasses. Then the process starts over again.

The gas Engine is a 4 stroke engine, Nother words the piston must make 4 stroke's to run. Here's the 4 strokes. Entake, compression, power and exhaustWhen you turn the engine over with the starter a piston starts moving, As it starts going down the intake valve starts opening witch lets air and fuel come into the cylinder. That's the intake stroke.When the piston is compleatly down the intake and exhaust valves are closed, When the piston starts back up it will compress the air and fuel, this will be the compression stroke. As soon as the piston reaches the top of the cylinder the spark plug fires witch Explodes the air and fuel mixture that's in the cylinder and drives the piston down. This will be the power stroke. When the piston is all the way down and starts up again, The exhaust valve will open and the piston will push the exhaust gases out into the exhaust pipe. This will be the exhaust stroke. Then the piston starts down, intake valve opens and it does all over again.I hope you understand now. This is all happin real fast

If the car starts sounding louder than normal, or if the exhaust note changes (essentially, if it starts sounding like a race car and it never did before), crawl under and look for leaks, holes, etc. There are two effects of having a bad exhaust. One is just bad--it can upset the way the car runs, and possibly cause it to stop running after a while. The other's terrible--exhaust gases can find their way into the ventilation system, get into your car and kill everyone inside.
