I had a Z1 catch can on my Q for a few weeks and took it off just before taking the car to the dealer. Surprisingly it had about 1/8 of a teaspoon of oil in it. But the dealer found I had a bad drivers side turbo so I wonder if that is why the catch can had some oil in after such a short time?

No definitely not. The catch can is getting any blow by in the crank case and valve covers. Unrelated. An 1/8 a teaspoon in a few weeks isn't much fr.

Bad turbos are common. Supposedly the turbos they are replacing them with are "revised" and hopefully you will not have any more problems.

Just checking in, no oil on the catchcan dipstick yet. I need a new set of allens, the ones i have won't let me take the can off, and I can't unscrew it as installed...too much in the way. I'll need to square that away before it gets cold out.
