Puff of smoke starting 5000TQW


	My '86 TQW with 133,000 miles recently started dumping a good puff of
smoke on cold startup.  It happens about 70 percent of the time.  I
wouldn't be so concerned except it has also started using oil.  Not
visable blue smoke,  but about a 1/2 to 1 quart to every 1000 miles. 
I've had other turbo Audis with higher mileage that didn't use any
measurable oil so I'm a little concerned.   I can see valve seals
possibly causing the puff of smoke, but what about the oil usage?   Are
turbo seal failures a possible cause?

Thanks for the input.
