535 - green gunk from exhaust

hi
just returned from a little runaround in my motor and i noticed the exhaust still smoking when i'd got out. on closer inspection i found one of my exhaust was i coated inside with a green gunk and it was the heat of the exhaust melting this green stuff that was causing the smoke.

does anyone know if this could be caused by any mechanical failure? or maybe it could be to do with me filling up with **** fuel from asda supermarket for the first time? or maybe someone just gave me a christmas treat up my rear pipe?

your thoughts anyone please?

thanks
DUVBOY

Is your coolant colored green? If it is, you may have a blown cylinder head gasket (or hopefully not, cracked head) causing your coolant to migrate to your cylinder(s). Inspect your coolant carefully if you have a shiny sheen on top indicating oil migration, as well.

Or, as you said, someone could be pulling a prank on you...

FYI. If your car has the BMW coolant, it's blue in color. Just did a coolant flush on my car about a week ago and it was blue coming out and blue going in.
