Exhaust spitts gas??

Today a friend of mine was following me through town and when we stopped he asked me if I had turned on my windshield washers. I did not... He then said when I hit the gas his window got sprayed with something and it feels oily.. he rubbed his windshield.. Sure enough there was tiny spots on his windshield and they felt oily? I got to thinking and I have also noticed that at idle my moter does have a vibration.. A brand new V8 should be idleing smooth as silk yes?
Has anyone experienced this.? Maybe I have a miss?
Zack :confused

More Likely

Since water is a byproduct of the combustion of hydrocarbons (buring gas) it can condense in the exhaust system and exit as droplets or a fine mist. One the whole exhaust system is warm the water will no longer condense and the 'problem' goes away since all the water leaves as vapor.
