M3 with slight burning smell

Hi , I just purchase used 2011 M3 w/ 3k miles . I have driven more lately and noticed that after stopped, there is a slight burning engine smell . I also noticed the sound of a droplet of fluid driping on to a hot metal surface making an evaporated noise. Anyone with any ideas or suggestions.
Thanks for checking,
Mike

The sound is more than likely condensation from the AC dripping onto hot surfaces. I assume since you are in Houston that you are probably running AC. Burning smell could be oil burning off from an oil change.

BTW, congrats on the new M.
