I have had this also happen on my 300D. It usually occurred while accelerating from lets say 60 to 75 mph, and just for a second or two. One time it almost looked a little reddish/rust colored to me. I tried to recreate this phenomenon, but it seems to be totally random. I theorized that perhaps it was just a bunch of soot that got blown out by the right volume of exhaust going through the pipes...but thats all I can come up with so far. There are times when I wish I could recreate the phenomenon...just to get people to back off. (nothing more irritating than some idiot on your rear end, when there is another idiot just infront of your front the guy in front would move for him, but not for me...hah!)
