Running Rich
I have exactly 370 miles on my new Boxster. Per break-in procedures, I have never exceeded 4200 RPM's. I was cleaning it up a bit and I noticed my exhaust had a fair amount of black residue on it (see picutures).

The car seems to run fine, but based on this residue, I'm wondering if it's running a little rich? There are no warning lights, etc. so I'm wondering if I'm just being paranoid or if this is normal?

I am pretty sure that is normal. All exhausts get that, but it shows up more on chrome.
You're just being a bit paranoid, but everyone is like that with a new car, you should have seen me go off, when I discovered my car had a small scratch the second day I had it.

Thanks rick, you're right, I'm probably just paranoid.
