Fixed maybe?

You might of seen my previous post on overfilling the oil And thinking my AOS need replacing. My mechanic suggested to just drop all of the oil and do a oil change with the right ammount. We gave it a shot. Started with a little bit of smoke but he said that would be built up oil after a few minutes it was all clear. I couldn't believe it, I still will change my AOS on my next service just in case but she is running perfect now. Out of excitement took her straight home gave her a wash and went for a drive

Ok. Past that. Replace that AOS. It will keep blowing oil into the intake. You may even have an oil puddle in your intake like I did. This can foul plugs or worse.

The parallels are unbelievable

How many weeks until a go fund me for a beater?

As for OP, the last thing you want with these cars is hunting down AOS issues; It's no fun. I'd replace it soon.

However, do note that a little oil smoke on startup from time to time is pretty normal for these cars.

Well, SC is about as far south as Melbourne so it makes sense.
