    Exhaust puff?

    From a standing start, very hard acceleration in manual mode (DSG) is it normal for a plume of 'smoke' from tail pipe. Not sure on colour, would assume black from excess amount of or very rich fuel being burnt quickly. Happened last night from lights, saw it in trailing cars head lights, only seemed to happen of the line. Anyone know this is normal or not?

    Never owned a turbo car before i take it? Completely normal. Its excess fuel being dumped. A tune will lean it out a bit (they run quite rich stock) and you wont notice it as much after a tune.

    Yup. First turbo. Thanks thought a tune might help a bit.

    Its especially noticeable at night if there is another car behind you - as their headlights are clouded by the black smoke. Can't see it really during the day.

    When i spool i dump a cloud of soot and then bye bye, you should go behind a TDI on a drive day... its like a james bond style smoke screen even with a stock 103TDI!
