My 99 9-5 does this the diagnosis from the dealer (and by the way has been verified by others) is that the oil seals on the turbo are going, and seaping oil into the intake manifold. Mine has the same symptoms, in the cold weather no puff of blue smoke on startup, but when it gets hot and the car has sat for a while I always get it. At some point I'm going ot have to replace or have the turbo rebuilt, but I'm willing to put up with it for a wihle.
