    White Smoke from exhaust?

    Hi lads, sorry for not getting back to yous sooner but completely forgot about this thread. Basically I got the cars ECU back to standard and got the TD1 cleared? I think that’s what it’s called. I have a resonator delete and was told they don’t care about exhaust on warranty. So left the car in on a Wednesday and it was ready on Friday! The bill was £3000 on warranty and needed a Turbo, intercoolers and a new cat! The manger in the garage said I was very lucky that the shaft of the turbo went into the exhaust instead of the engine!!! Car is driving 100% but don’t have the same trust in it now to rev the balls of it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    So you took your car to Volkswagen with the tuner map on the car? Thought dealers are able to tell if it’s mapped then walk away from it ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    But car was boosting perfect and then no bang or nothing just no power and it only sounds like it’s off a cylinder? No grinding or nothing? It revs fine too Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Car is a year old with only 10k miles. I have the middle box out of the car. Would that affect the warranty? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hi, I wouldn’t even know where to start mate, not mechanically minded in the slightest. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Hi, was driving at 70mph on the motorway last night in 7th gear and put throttle down for a wee bust of acceleration and worked for a few seconds then no power and loads of white smoke coming from it. On idle is lumpy and hasn’t used any oil or water? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Oil consumption

    I have a mk7.5 R and got oil changed at 3000 miles just for minds sake. As Bmw performance cars require a so called run-in service after 1500 mile. I now have 10,000 mile and haven’t used a drop of oil? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
