    TDI exhaust dripping water.

    Driving down Gosford way last week had a newish mk6 pull out from their drive in front of me
    with the TDI badge clearly showing on the back but the exhaust was dripping water droplets like
    you see when a petrol motor has just started to warm up .

    So do these new TDI's put out water or had a TDI badge been added to say a tsi model by the owner.

    It's condensation in the exhaust pipe. Common for both petrol & diesel engines.
