    Hi guys. i got a little concern. when i drive - after change gear - (2,3,4) and put press accelerator got blue smoke coming out of exhaust. i can see it in rear window. when i stop and just rev it - i got black and sometimes a bit blue smoke coming out. what is the problem?

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

    could be a number of things like work valve or piston rings

    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.
