2)Hell of a lot of water vapour out of exhaust, more than other cars it seems

3)black substance build up on the bottom rim of the tailpipe cover

Yeah I got them.

Used to be concerned about the "steam" but haven't used a drop in 3 years.

Mine's the same! The burning smell is usually more obvious when I've been on a faster journey.

The vapour is always visibile on mine on a cold morning and has been the same for the last 3 years!

My 300 is the same, although I've no black stuff in the exhaust. Nice to hear the reason for the smell, I did wonder what it was.
