Check the gasket at the manifold/engine and manifold/exhaust (likely in your case) or broken exhaust with small hole in engine bay.

No power some times black smoke comeing out

That sounds like engine flooding, getting too much gas. Have electric choke checked for one but black smoke with drop in power must be too much gas at times.

My oil light was dinging and it started puttering and knocking then white smoke started comeing out. Is it possible the engine is not ruined?

The possibility would be extremely remote. If the engine will turn over when you try to start it, then it is likely rebuilable but it would be cheaper to find a used one in a scrap yard.Rebuilding would be in the $2500 to $3000 range but likely cheaper than a new block from BMW.Hope this helps.

check your power steering fluid container and power steering lines, they might be leaking and dripping on exhaust

You obviously have a leak somewhere. Check the radiator hoses and heater lines for seepage. It is passable you may have a head gasket problem. If you pull the plugs and see one white or a lot lighter than the rest it could be water ingestion in that cylinder. But check all the hoses first.
