Alfa Brera

31000miles. Time for big issues?

Hi, everybody.

My Brera 1.8 tbi began to smoke and smoke very well. It happend exactly on 50 000km (about 31,5t miles).
All time before oil consumption has increased, but no smoke until yesterday or it was almost invisible. The oil is recommended by manufacturer only, changing every 10t km (about 6t miles).

The biggest problem is Alfa are not most popular brand here (I'm from Russia) and this type of engines not officially available. So i can't just go to spare parts shop or dealer and buy all parts for repair what i need. I have to order it from Europe.
I see this are valve seals or oil rings, probably more first - no smoke from oildipstick hole and much deposit on spark plugs, but i can't know exactly.
And mostly curious, how it ever could be?!!!! It's only 30t miles!!!

So, guys, anybody heard something about this kind of issues with this engines? Is this more or less typical case or i'm just so lucky?
