    I have black oily gunge around the joint in the breather pipe from the top of the engine to the main air pipe to the front of the Turbo, visible in pic...is this anything to worry about?

    Thanks for replies....my car runs ok and does not consume oil, as far as I can tell in 6 months of ownership. So I will assume that the oily patch it normal.
