    mostly likely engine oil is burning/mixing with fuel in engine, get it checked out asap or it'l be expensive

    Sounds like the notorious porous head problem, only affects early TDi's So yes get it checked before it costs a fortune.

    Thats some spec you have there ! any Torque figures ??

    Luke..as a rule of thumb, black smoke is fuel, blue is oil, white is steam ! Blowing smoke on acceleration is not good mate. check it out quick.

    :D no torque figures but its running 1.8bar very strong to red line, not had chance to dyno it yet. I might be planning a few extra mods will post ideas soon as i have info. I know it will give your V6 a good run for its money :p

    I'm slowly coming round to the diesel torque thing...borrowed a 3ltr A4 tdi the other week and i realise bhp is great but torque is better :)

    If you like torque you just have to try a 335D, it's amazing and even manages to sound good.
