    Hi, there is white smoke coming from the exhaust and puffs of smoke coming from the turbo, but the car still drives fine, ive been told its the oil seal on the turbo, is this right? and is there any chance of changing the seal myself? thanks

    Check the Turbo from under the car the smoke coming from your turbo is most prob from the oil return pipe as the gaskett goes on them better to replace pipe, Im going through the same probs mate but my smoking on idle has gone fingers crossed but im changing the oil return gaskett and pipe tomorrow there is a pic in my thread titled "need confirmation"
