If you're driving hard then just make sure that the last mile is driven calmly to prevent any hotspots in the turbo. You shouldn't really leave your car on idle for any length of time if you can help it. Especially when warming it up the morning for example, you should drive off straight away.

yeah thats what i was told at audi, in the mornings drive off straght away to prevent the car sucking in a load of crap, and on a hot day give the engine one good foot down rev before pulling off to flush out any substance that may have been sucked in during hot days, well thats what i was told, As for the turbo, my friend had his car remmaped and after a few weeks his turbo went bump and that was it he needed a new turbo. I must say he didnt do any justice by thrashing it about

I thought apart from the heat issue, it will stop the problem of the turbo still spinning at high rpm then you turn off the oil supply(ie switch off the ignition).

i have an 1999 a4 1.8t that has been remaped and chipped boosting 210 bhp . Recently it has an intermittent fault where sometimes it will hesitate and judder really badly under boost have read other posts saying that it happens and then when the car is stopped and restarted it seems to clear up . well mine does the same ive only had the car a week and its starting to wind me up just a bit now!!! any advice would be greatly appreciated ive never left my car to idle before turning off (cooling down period etc) . i have to be honest the car has been given quite a bit of stick since ive had it but has full service history etc so expect to be in top nick it runs beautifully except for the boost issue

Hello everyone,
I always leave my Audi A3 2.0l 8l to idle in the morning and after driving for atleast 1-2mins everyday, i didnt know about that, and the reason to why i do it is because my valve seals seem to be a problem because every morning i get a short term blue smoke of about 20-30 secs.
I could be wrong but that is what i think.

Cheers
