    Blue smoke on start up

    Hi everyone,
    new to the forum so a quick hello. My 2002 s3 with 100k fsh has just started to smoke blue on start up but does not smoke at any other time and there is no loss in performance no strange noises from the turbo. Does this sound like turbo seals or valve stem seals or something to do with the breather system. I must admit i'm a bit worried because i know blue smoke is not good.
    Thanks for any advice

    Weelcome to the forum.

    Seems to point towards burning of oil, stem seals is most common, some have said they have driven for even few years with this & no problems, but doesnt mean yours hasnt got an issue, upto you mate, check the oil levels daily, see if dropping alot.
