The white/grey smoke is steam (water). (from the cooling system)The engine has either blown a head gasket or there is a crack on the engine block.
Stop as soon as safely practical at home or wherever you will work on it.
Before you spend lots of money, try an engine block sealer, less than $15. Bar's Block Seal, for example. Read and follow directions carefully. You may need to apply twice. May also last for a couple of months or several years.
Otherwise, replace head gasket on affected side and/or replace engine (block).

The easiest way to reset the computer coding system is to unhook your battery and let it sit for 3-5 minutes. If the code comes back on after starting your car then whatever is causing the code is still happening.
Beware that you will most likely need to know the code to unlock your radio if it has the theft protection built in where if power is unhooked from the radio the radio is locked until you follow the procedure outlined in your owners manual with a code to get it back working. If you don't have the code, your Volkswagen dealer can help you out as well.

i have a simialer problem but i was getting neat fuel out the exhaust as well . i removed the engine because id got a replacement then stripped the old one and as i thought it was a valve timing problem.looking at the engine from the front the cams on the left bank had jumped one tooth out of time so fuel was not being burnt and coming straight through the exhaust.strangely it didnt seem to have a big missfire and idling and smoke got worse when warm.

You are most likely burning it. There is much less smoke produced these days, with the cat. converter.
A wear area on yoru vehicle is valve stem seals, when they go, oil is actually pumped out...
Also, consider a high mileage blend oil, like casteroil. I am not into mechaninc in a can, but this stuff lowers consumption and is semi synthetic...
You can reaseal the valve stems, but I wonder about guide looseness, and fairly rapid seal failure again...Still, you can get it going and sell the vehicle....
