    HELP! Smoking GSI

    Hi everyone bought a gsi 2 days ago but its started smoking but not all like yesterday it was smoking badly on the way over to show my dad but when i took him out in it it did not do it once but when we got home we had a little play and it also does it if you just rev the car to about 2000 - 3000 rpm and hold it there for about 5-10 seconds it starts to smoke and its blue smokeand then when you let off it turns to light blue/grey/white smoke then goes away unless you do it again but it stinks of burnt oil so was just wondering if anyone has a good idea what it may be?

    Thanks Timmy

    It does sound as if your turbo is dying, but welcome to the site anyway!
