Yeah did think about that, drove about 20 miles at good "ahem" speed. Got it good and warm first as well before booting it. Little bit of smoke when sitting at the lights but when I pulled up outside my house it looked like someone had chucked a smoke bomb in my exhaust. Even got the neighbours out the house as he could see it out his window lol

Oil is fine. Bit lost myself mate lol, that's why I thought someone on here might have had a similar problem. Might do a compression test tomorrow before removing the turbo. Just want some ideas really of things to check before I have to start removing large parts. Just in case it's something simple really

Check the breather pipes to the cam covers as well.
If you pull off the exhaust downpipe + maybe elbow off you should see if it's wet with oil ,if you run it for a while.

white smoke is normally water burning and since the standard turbo is water cooled as well is the level fine?


however i also say moisture in the exhaust system

can take minutes or a while mate i done a headgasket and it took 3 days for the exhaust to clear of the water in it plus with this cold weather it will take longer.

imo

I think it may be head gasket if alot of white smoke after 20 mins of driving.

Doesnt take alot of water really, the normal cold weather mist/smoke is fairly light in comparison.
