    Hi all,

    Its a 1.8 T Quattro

    1) when i start up sumtimes, i can see a little white smoke coming out the exhaust, not all the time, but 40% of the time. Lasts for 30 secs then goes away completly. Also if sumtimes when i put my foot down it smokes for a second then goes again maybe 40% of the time. Any ideas?? Turbo seals???

    2)When im driving economically ( when im low on petrol lol) it feels that between 1600 - 2000 rpm i can hear a slight quiet noise coming from somwhere or a vibrating noise ish. Could it be a loose heatshield or suming????

    Any answers gretly apreciated
