    I have a very small leak. I noticed a very black fluid underneath the middle of the car, slightly closer to the front. Looks too black to be oil, 900 miles on the car. Any ideas? 20150421_080804.jpg

    Not a mechanic but isn't exhaust condensation the water that comes out the tail pipe?

    It is exhaust condensation, mine has the same thing, it is water and is mixed with oil/carbon from the exhaust pipes at one of the joints.There may also be a relief hole or two in the exhaust system to let this out.
    Mine will actually blow some out as well when the car is started

    Ok, so if it is coming out in the middle of the car does that mean I have an exhaust leak somewhere?

    It's a slip fit, pressure will make it seep. You're fine sleep well.

    yep the joints will leak unless you use high temp clear silicone which is what I do on all my builds guess the factory overlooked this minor annoyance! o_O
