Sounds like an EGR issue, I think the update is coincidental with the problem.

 

Is it just unresponsive, and slow to get to speed, or feels like a little bump in the acceleration?

Yeah more likely to be egr and or a split pipe.

You can fit An egr blanking plate, I did this and it smoothed the car immediately and it reduced the smoke. Then I had a cracked turbo intercooler pipe Which is now replaced and all is a lot better...

How did you get on with the EGR blanking plate. Did you notice a difference. Wondering what the re-percussions are post install of a blanking plate. Surely the filth has to go somewhere. Do you then need to regularly remove the plate and clean the back log out?
