Hi guys,

Long time no see, I've got a slight issue it appears with my 2011 VT.
When I start the car with the fan on sat idle there is a smell of exhaust fumes coming into the cabin, i've lifted the bonnet and checked round all of the fuel lines and under the car for any leaks and there appears to be nothing untoward.
However if I go nearer the catalytic converter there's a strong smell of fumes, anyone know if this is a common issue or just likely a leaky seal or exhaust that's blowing?

Thanks guys

+1 - I had exactly the same issue which turned out to be a split CAT.
Mine had split round the back of the CAT neck so you couldn't see anything without giving the engine a rev.

And also remember, if there is an exhaust smell in the cabin, there are some exhaust gases in the cabin, including things like carbon monoxide that can make you drowsy if you are exposed to it for a while or in larger quantities (or even (unlikely in this case) dead). So, it's worth getting it seen to quickly.
