Oil leak Puma D90 2009 in the muffler, is this normal?

Hello everyone
I have 6400 km 2009 puma D90.
I have notice oil in the muffler.
The oil is there just after I start the D90 in the morning.
I review a lot of topics and posts here to understand this leak and can`t find anything.
I`m new in Puma and Defender.
Is this normal?
Help please!!!
Thanks!!!

Are you sure that it is oil and not soot in a drop of condensation?

You will get a black soot in the tail pipe that mixes with the condensation. It should sorta stain your finger if you touch it. You should be able to feel the difference between that and oil.

I've seen it, looks like oil to me but
can be wrong.
I told Max may be the best move is
to remove escape manifold to check
each cylinder.

It it really is oil, then more than likely your turbo is leaking (leaking HEAVILY to get it down that far)

water/condensation mixed with soot would be more likely.

I'm so terrified about stealership service that I drop
the warranty on mine after 6 months.

It's a possibility also, turbo leak.

If you have a warranty, why not just bring it to the dealer to have it looked at?
