147 seems to smoke quite a bit

My 147, seems to produce a lot smoke from exhaust, not like blown engine smoke but more like a chokey, kind of just started look to it. It seems to be there even after sitting in traffic for a while, obviously you get it when it's cold but I have never had a car that has done it as much for so long, could it be the catalytic convertor maybe.

No performance issues by the way, runs lovely, starts everytime,idles as it it should, the only thing, it has been very cold but I now check other cars and they dont seem to produce as much
