hi my RR Phantom has a issue.

it only smokes on one side when idle and driving off. it has a funny smell to the smoke.
it only smokes when fully warm. its light at the moment but I am sure it'll get heavier.


what could be the causes of this? new headgasket was replaced 2 years ago by a specialist.

Verify with UV dye. Likely gasket.

Were the heads checked for warping ?
If all that was done, was replacing the head gasket(s), then the mechanic should have checked if the heads were straight and he should have pressure checked them as well.

Note that if the heads were warped, the whole head has to be made true again, just plaining the deck is incorrect.
If they are warped, the valve covers will never seal right and will always leak.
