I think your car runs W7DC's. I suppose you could try W8DC's (Not the WRxDC's - R= resistor) as they are a little hotter I believe. A little smoke could be valve seals, and unless the plugs are fouling I would just run it as is until you do the seals.

I have heard of folks pulling the solenoid and cleaning/lubing and reinstalling. One of the guys at wourk did that three times on his SLC before springing for a fresh Bosch rebuilt. Worth a try.
