When I put my foot down on my Audi A4 1.9TDI I see a load of smoke come out behind me. I have noticed this on other desiel Audi but never notice it on other desiel BMW. Is this a problem with Audi general? Is it a problem with the way the owner drive the car? Is it something to do with servicing or the engine? I find this very very embrasing? HELP!! Thanks

I'm assuming that it's not black, blue or white but a sort of grey colour. The first three could mean a problem!

I had a 115PD with 176,000 miles which didn't do it. But I've currently got a 130 Sport with 73,000 miles which does. I was told by a specialist that it's not that unusual on the higher bhp TDI's but I agree it does look a bit embarrassing at night in the following cars headlamps.

If your car doesn't use water, oil (excessively) or too much diesel, or have poor performance you're probably ok. Unless someone knows otherwise!
