    Hey all, I have a 2006 ibiza cupra 1.8t (180hp) BBU engine code. She’s on 88k miles and is really really well looked after having everything she’s needed.
    I’ve not had much trouble from it but recently I’ve noticed that after driving and getting the car up to temperature she seems to smoke a bit. An example would be sitting at traffic lights before moving off you can see a bit of white / blue smoke go up the back window, and it does smell a little bit. I’ve also noticed it doing after coming off boost and letting the car rev down (Overrun I believe?), it’s not 100% of the time but is worrying me, I don’t seem to be burning any oil or any other fluids. It’s never been remapped or anything and just has a RamAir induction kit and a full milltek decat exhaust with a forge recirculation valve. Could this be a sign of turbo / valve seals / piston rings?
