is it a 1.8 turbo or 2.8 V6 or 2.7 biturbo V6 ? on most models what you will be looking for is a 3 letter code like ATQ or APW and is normally on a sticker on the timing belt cover, it is also stamped into the engine on a ledge up high. if no luck there check the owners manual, around the 3rd page there will be a sticker that was put in the book during predelivery inspection this sticker is about 3 inches by 3 inches and filled with id codes for almost everything. If the pdi wasn't done right another copy of the same sticker will be under or next to the spare tire in the spare tire well.

White smoke is caused by engine oil being burnt. If your vehicle is turbo charged then it is most likely the turbo bushes that are worn, allowing oil to escape into the exhaust system. This can also be caused by worn piston rings but is unlikely on a vehicle of this age unless it has overheated badly in the past. To check turbo, remove main intake pipe from turbo. Check for excessive movement on impeller shaft in turbo by moving it up and down. To check piston rings carry out a compression test or if you have the equipment a cylinder leakage test will give you a better indication of cylinder condition. If the Turbo is at fault it will need to be reconditioned or replaced. Check oil feed pipe to turbo for blockage or restriction [common fault].

SOURCE: Audi A4 B6 1.8T puffing
Check immediately the turbocharger! DO NOT START THE ENGINE WITH THIS KIND OF PROBLEM!
Remove the air inlet axial center hose of the turbocharger, in other words the compressor air inlet hose. Then check axial & radial gaps of the turbocharger rotor.
Check also the turbocharger oil pressure supply. Check the engine oil level also.
Repair & replace bad pieces.
In the most cases the turbocharger is out of order when engine puffing off blue smoke and losing power.
