    hi guys, my 2006 2.0tdi 140 a3 sport sometimes smokes a little, but only when under heavy acceleration.

    is this normal?

    do other members experience this?

    its not a blue smoke, just a black soot like haze that i notice in my rear view mirror if i take off from the lights very quickly?

    im thinking of getting it remapped you see and i dont want to spend money on that if other things need fixing.

    just thought id put it out there for advice prior to taking it to my friends garage.
