    Default Bit smoky and a rubber smell????

    Was drivin my 150cdti 55 today and I noticed a quite visible light greysh smoke coming from the exhaust....

    So i pulled over to check the car and there was a sort of burning rubber smell??


    This is definitely coming from the exhaust and not a tyre rub.....



    Any ideas???????????????
