Yes I'm pretty sure that was the cause of my Audi's excess steam.

As said, after pressing the car into daily service it soon cleared up & was never an issue again.
Too many cars!!

My URS6 gave off a huge amount of steam at first as it had been sat for a few years being started but not fully heated through, a good few hours of blasting about and enjoying the lovely boost soon sorted it and its runs nice and dry and smooth

Yep my 2.8 quattro steamed for a while too. But this thread is called white smoke, not white steam, maybe that confused me?
