    Black smoke?

    Does the car drive normally - normal power delivery? Or has anything changed? Not disturbed the MAF wiring when changing the air filter? How about when the redex + fuel is used up and regular diesel is put in? Just some thoughts... apart from giving it the 'usual suspects' once-over m8!

    My 3.0 loves to smoke. A very fast drive with gear changes up to 4500rpm seems to have cured the problem (for now).

    I replaced the injectors on mine a while back but no change...still smokes. Light grey, just like yours. The hard drive, and possibly the better fuel (Austria diesel, Luxembourg premium diesel) seem to have cured it though.

    Engine oil, probably turbo oil seals.
