First of all let me say I apparently have no exhaust leak.
For a long time I've been asking myself how was it possible that the exhaust of my car smells so bad. It does it when in the morning, I start my car, drive out of my garage, and go to close it - and in the evening when I come back home, I drive my car into the garage and then get out of it.
Of course those are just the 2 moments when I actually get to smell the stuff, but I am positive that it is always so smelly (otherwise it wouldn't be the same when I start the car as well as when I come back home after a drive).
I cannot describe the smell. It is stronger than I thought the exhaust of a car would be and I guess it would be similar to burnt diesel, but I don't really know.
I do live in Germany, where a percentage of bio-diesel is mandatory in all the diesels and in every gas station.
What could be the cause of the smell?
Am I too sensitive to the diesel, or am I right to say that the exhaust shouldn't have a strong smell?
If it is helpful I have a VW Golf VI (2009) 2.0 with more or less 150.000km life.
