    I'll get some emissions in a bag for you to sniff and see if it's the same smell

    Jokes apart...Is yours consuming any coolant? Even the tiniest amount?
    Oil?

    Al turbo diesels will burn oil. if you run the car get it hot get home switch car off strait away. You leave a small amount of oil in the trubo that will them burn away. If you park up and let run for a few seconds the oil drains from the turbo and you engine oil level will no drop to fast. THIS IS A PROBLEM WITH ALL XD DIESELS. Mine does not lose any water. There is a know water problem with the linners on this V6 CDTI VX and opel know about this problem

    Since they know, do they contribute for a new engine incase of complete rear bank liners failure?

    I've noticed that the fumes have a weird smell only when the car is fully warmed up. If the guage sits at around 80 or lower all smells fine...

    Is the smell more like unburnt diesel, charcoal, paint, or rotten eggs?
    Is the smell stronger at the back or front of the car (or difficult to determine)?
