Default Blue smoke on idle

does anyone know what this means? It's only when idle for maybe a minute or more then smoke starts coming out of the exhaust, then when driving it goes away.

Could be one of numerous things. Turbo, valve stem oil seals, rings.

My 1st Impreza did this, it was turbo seals so I stuck a 2nd hand one on and it cured it
