      funny enough, I`v posted on this same problem "burnin oil smell"
      So far have had new oil return pipe,then they said manifold but before it went in they changed there mind and said it`s the turbo. now had new turbo, not manifold and still got, just not as bad. Will ring VX up after the weekend and get it booked back in. Problem is I`v changed the restrictor bolt for smaller one as suggested on this forum, Should I remove bolt and replace with original before it goe`s in????

                ask them why they will not change it
                I get on with my dealers used to send all our cars down to them
                some times they can crack due to high exhaust temps and bad maps stuck on the cars
                the truth is out there

                  My dealer says it is but because they have changed my turbo due to the oil smell I am unable to have a manifold as they come complete I have had enough

                    This seems as bad as the piston on the corsa

                    theres about 50 threads about cracked manifolds.

                    not good

                    was going to buy second hand but now very wary

                            That's what there saying cause the manifold and turbo be replaced before I can't have it replaced again but this time the manifold is cracked I spent all day on phone today trying to sort things out and lost a days wage
