Hi! My daughter owns a 2016 208 GTI and following her home on the way back from a service I noticed a momentary but noticeable puff of black exhaust smoke when she accelerated hard.

The puff didn't repeat itself but when I got home I got her to go out again a little later with me behind her and plant her foot a few times. The puff happened the first time but not on subsequent attempts.

It looks like she puts her foot down, half a second later the turbo kicks in and a puff of black smoke appears. This goes away almost instantly. Following this, it doesn't happen again.

The reason I'm here is to ask if this is normal for this engine. This may or may not be related to it just being serviced; that may be a coincidence, I wouldn't normally be driving behind her to notice it.
