    Oh fiddle-dee-dee! The tail pipe is melting the paint.

    I just can't believe it, I was washing the car before the temperature dipped below 32 and I noticed that the paint and plastic has started to melt around the passenger side tail pipe. How can it be. Why the passenger side and not the driver's side also. Both tail pipe sides are the same distance to the body, yet the passenger side must be running hotter.

    The only thing that I have done different in the last 3 weeks was drive in sport mode about 6 times. Each time I drove in sport mode, I put the PASM to normal (I'd probably puke with the PASM's sport stiffness on NJ's Turnpike).

    For a car that I really do like, it sure has some intertesting issues. All of which are unacceptable for a $ 100k car.

    Halsey street is only a few blocks from my factory, I don't know whether to walk or run.

    This is truely a disappointing experience.

    Jb,
    How about some pictures?

    I'll try to post a picture in about 10 hours. Carlos, any ideas why that bank is running hot?

    Ok thanks.

    Have no clue, the exhasut on the passerger side must be faulty to do soemthing like that. I take it its nt a painting defect since you say the plastic is also affected, but lets wait till the pics.

    Re: Oh fiddle-dee-dee! The tail pipe is melting the paint.

    Did you check the heat insulation from the inside of the bumper for that side?
