    what is the possibility for water to drip (comes out in very little amount) out from exhaust with no coolant lose, and also very little white smoke with sweet burning smell but this disappear say after 1 min . i have notice a very slight milky stuff from the oil cover but this goes off when engine is warm.. is this a possible head gasket problem?
    no lost of power or what so ever
    car is 2.0 fsi 04reg

    cheers!!

    Possibly just condensation with the recent cold weather

    If you are not loosing coolant then it might be due to cold weather or only doing short journeys.

    Quite often I'm behind cars and see loads of water coming out as they drive, like pints of it. I must admit I thought it was normal...

    That's water which condensed in the exhaust system. Normal thing.
