I then found first problem with my biturbo. I got sometimes burning oil
smell when stopping. It wasn't really serious and I thought I'll check it in
next oil change. Well, car was really soaked with oil and new oils did
worsen the situation. I took the car in the garage and took of the bottom
plate and washed the engine. The bottom plate looked like this:

the engine, I waited hour or so and could not see any oil. I started the
engine and let it run for 15 minutes. I could see some oil coming from
drivers side of oil sump. I'm quite sure that gasket is ok and oil is coming
from some upper part.

Any ideas? Car is going to 30 000km service next week and they will check
that problem also. I'm just curios how big  bucks it'll cost me:o)

Btw. here is picture of car and the bottom plate washed :o)

related :o)
