where on the car does the screeching sound come from?
where does the smoke come from? the tail pipe?

I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
common things that might cause this would be a turbo failure, crankcase ventilation system failure, or exhaust leak of some kind
this is a critical issue, you should not drive the vehicle until this is repaired at a qualified BMW garage
