Is this only when she is cold or after a hard ride as well?

Cold idle, BMW say its a little port for the condensation inside the exhaust to drip out.

Can some confirm this?

Water is byproduct of combustion. When the exhaust is hot enough it vaporizes. If the exhaust is hot and dripping, you have problems.

Ah, i like when a motor deposits water, it means your air to fuel ratios are near perfect.
