Little update.

Its not been in for its MOT yet but on having a look over the car and taking it to try and reproduce the same thing in a quiet car park it seems its not the brakes. Once the car is heating up I have oil running down the front of the engine from near the dipstick area, dripping onto the exhaust and burning. With the heavy braking a bunch of oil must have got thrown onto it at once and made so much smoke.

As far as I had known the small leak I knew of seemed to be further under the car, so I'll need to work out exactly if this is new or a worsening of my existing leak.
Currently in steven1244's garage:
