Dry - Liquid? Sounds like an oxymoron, anyway the black is most likely just carbon, and the wet is water, both a result of normal combustion.

How's the car running?

Why have you noticed this now?

Have you monitored your exhaust long and when did it change?

What is the condition of the engine and exhaust systems?

Has your fuel consumption (mileage) increased?

Does it smell like gasoline or rotten eggs?

throw us a bone! ;^)
