Default Excessive smoke - vapour

I have noticed recently that there seems to be excessive water contstantly coming out of the exhausts, in turn is being turned into vapour and thus looks like smoke. Each time you rev the engine, water pours out and this doesnt seem right.

Would appreciate any comments before I take it into Audi

normal to cars with a catalyst so no problem it stops when the engine is at normal working temp, if your worried then always seek advice from the dealer

Do you make a lot of short trips in your car? This can cause excess water vapor.

Thanks and I do a lot of short trips, so you were spot on. I recently did a long drive and problem solved.
