    smoke smoke smoke:/

    had my car sitting there for a few days while i fitted my front mount, cdti air box and pipe work.

    i started it up and white puffs of smoke came out off the engine bay, took a closer look and it looked like it was coming from the manifold side.. it looks like plastic melting but doesnt smell like it.. ive had a look at it and cant see anything melting.

    Any ideas what it could be?

    its a 52 plate sri turbo, with 53k on the clock

    anyone pleasee?
