    Hi guys

    Just wanting to know if anyone knows whats going on here.

    My car feels a little sluggish up until 2k revs when the turbo kicks in. Its fine after that. When i floor it at 2000 revs i get some smoke from the exhaust. Not happened before. Last month one of my boost pipes had come loose. I replaced the clips and it was fine since. Car was serviced about 2 months ago, all filters fuel and oil were changed.

    Anyone had anything similar?

    Its a 2.0 Tdi dsg.

    Sounds like turbo trouble to be honest. Sticking vanes maybe?

    Get it cleaned and see if that helps?
