Im guessing its burning off oil that has seaped into the chambers over night?
It clears pretty quick and then all day theres no smoke at all.
Would it be valve seats or seals? Or both?
And is it a head off job?

worth taking plugs out when car been sat for a day plus & see if can see oil drips on tops of pistons . bore scope cameras are cheap these days too .
What turbo outlet pipes like for oil film ?
Valve seals can be done with head on by using compressed air or the old rope down plug hole trick to hold valve in place but best with head off if can as can check guides for wear/cracks etc & refresh seat, decoke & whatever else you fancy .
Would recommend genuine stem seals, others can be problematic & due to hassle fitting it one of those things you want right first time & for long time ...
Lol im sure i will fi d a good deal on one@Mr B wrote:Should get idea without camera buy using a torch & looking at plugs too .
I would check things out further before deciding on action to take.
i would also stick with trying rebuild current head if evidence points to it being the issue unless you get chance of a particularly decent used one at a steal which you might being the midland deal hunter
