Hi there buddy,

It could be the seal of your oil feed line to your turbo. these are known to fail.

It's a tricky job but can be a DIY one if you are fairly competent.

Searching google will come up with loads of answers too

I can't post external links as I don't have enough posts! just google 'oil feed line R56 turbo'
