When the car is first started, what rpm does it idle at? Reason I ask is that maybe your turbo oil sump system isn't up to par and this would be excacerbated when the idle is low. Another problem could be the oil seals in the turbo are bad.

drive it for a few days, if it looks like a mosquito fogger it's a turbo seal. Seriously these cars need to be driven, lot;s of stuff starts leaking from lack of use.
