Just after some advice really,

So above 3k rev's I can see in my rear view mirror some very light blue smoke (just to add I have a V6 back box fitted so the exhaust tips don't face down).

When I start the car everything is fine, no smoke what so ever. Car doesn't appear to be burning any oil either and seams to be ok when driving below 3k revs.

Am I correct in thinking that it may be the turbo seals here that's on it's way out or could it be something else?

Common issue often misdiagnosed as turbo failure.

They are missing from the service schedule for some reason so lots of cars have this issue.

Quick Update,

Changed the filter, old one was black. Date stamp on the old filter said 04/03, car is on a 53 plate so good chance its the original filter I'm guessing
