Running the road in the 06

Just returning from a 1700 round trip road trip. The 06 met the call of duty...in extreme heat too! Service engine soon light did appear but cleared it self after an hour or so?
Pretty much impressed with the performance of the M54 3.0 with a load of miles 230k now. She eats up the road. I do think I need to change the vcg. Also I'd like to switch out the coil packs...slight misfire when I experienced when I got back home.
All n all a successful run. However, there was this...

Oh yeah! Thanks for the reply...
AC was on constantly throughout the 1700 mile trip.
Here's my theory: it happens mostly on long trips and your moving at speeds of 70 to 80 +mph, at that speed, the condensation that normally you see dripping while the car is parked and leaves a puddle well it can't drip or the rushing air under the car will not allow the dripping but now forces the condensation back up reversing the flow and causing it to drip out on the passenger mat....
I think
