You mean to tell me we're still driving petrol cars in 2103?


I notice quite a bit of exhaust dust/debris clinging to my rear bumper and exhaust tips. It always washes off without too much trouble but seems beyond what I would consider normal. My old E46 convertible had some exhaust dust too -- but no where near as much. The day after I wash the car, it is already obvious to me.

Perhaps this is because of the turbo? (first time I've owned a turbo)

Is this normal? Opinions?
some soot on the tail pipe is normal. debris making it as far as your bumper seems a bit odd. How many miles on car? Have you checked oil meter in iDrive to see what it says? I hope you're not dealing with an oil burn issue.
