Hi.

Few things can cause you engine to smoke when accelerating ,engine under load.

Engine oil level to high ,check and drain some oil if necessary.

Using fully synthetic motor oil ..

And very common on this is the turbo ,have these possibility's checked .

Don't think you have piston rings or valve stem seals with the amount of KM driven "UNLESS" you have at lest once in the pass overheated the engine .

Need further assistance then please get back to me .

Kindest regards Greg
