White smoke from engine bay

Hello. Few days ago ingot msg for coolant refill.
I couldnt get bmw coolant cauz night time, so just bought it from walmart
It already mixed 50 :50 and it says can mixed with any color for any brands vehicle. I forgot brand name but its popular brand i guess.
Everything seems ok and working correctly since i refilled.
But after that day, when engine temperature reached operation temperature white smoke start come out from engine bay with burned smell. Also yesterday low engine coolant msg poped up again. I refilled again and i will check tonight.
Anyone has similar issue as me?
Is it from that walmart coolant?

You obviously have a coolant leak , it has nothing to do with the coolant you put in, take it in to have it checked,hopefully itís an easy fix

There's a leak or a coolant hose is loose. It'll be the cause of low coolant and the smoke

Search for coolant lines leak around turbos. Those I believe happened in 2013 models and perhaps were covered under recall. I also believe these hoses were redesigned in 14 and newer

Yea it was a leak from turbo cooling. But they said need fix it under my extended warranty. Not under recall. Its in shop now it will be done 3-5 days from now. Cost is around $2000. I hope no more problem on my vehicle.
