White smoke comming from scoop
I don't think it's much of a big deal but sometime last week I was stopped at a light and some Nissan NX with exhaust came up beside me and revved a little bit so I revved my engine up to 7k or so and let it go down to maybe 6500 and revved it up again (so it was only a quick rev) and I noticed just a tiny bit of clear/white smoke comming up from either below the windshield or the Hood scoop.. noticing that I decided not to race and when the light turned green we both ended up accelerating pretty slow and only went like 60km/h..though the speed limit was 70km/h and I normally do 80km/h (I think the guy was just trying to make others look stupid.)

But anyways, it did happen to be a warm day and I haven't been running the car very hard, maybe no more than 4k shifts up to fourth gear but only on a periodic basis and I think I did just come back from gasing up and on the way home I do run down this one straight at about 140km/h if I feel it's safe and no cops are around. My car as of now has under 11 000 km on it, the best thing I can think of is it was just warm out and some how that affected things and I believe a day or two prior I was getting low on engine oil so I put a bottle in so maybe there was some that spilt that I didn't noticed and all of a sudden it was burning and caused smoke.. no idea otherwise and my car runs fine and I've driven it up to 4-5k off and on to fourth gear lately.

Probably just the oil burning off...I spilled some on mine and it took about 2 days to burn off.

Regardless, you shouldn't be revving your engine that high with no load on it.

Good to see.. and yeah normally I don't rev that high and it was only for a second as I am pretty sure my engine sounded way better screaming at 7000 RPM than the couple "farts" the Nissan NX made.
