Hi Guys so guess what i go to have my car lowered and its all done then put on the lift to do the wheel alignment so i decide to look under the car and i almost have heart failure to see my sump cover and surrounds full of oil. So i call the dealer and rush it over there and according to them the oil return pipe from the turbo has a small leak OMG WTF on a new car.

:eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:

Perhaps the people that did your lowering ballsed it up and ruined your car.

Did you get a engine management light come on at all?
No engine light it looks like it is only leaking under pressure cause no oil in garage.
It was still 3/4 full

Not possible as they were no where near that and it was all over the bottom and the car didnt ride anywhere yet.

As far as you know. They could have thought it was in for another reason and then realised half way through. Wouldn't surprise me with the sorts of places that do lowering.

Youll never know.

If it wasn't covered in oil before they started work, then it's extremely likely that they'd caught the seal that had leaked.
