I call it VTEC dust. Because the stock ECU runs the car a little rich on the high cam, a bit of fuel smoke comes out your tail pipe. And if the tail pipe terminates before it's completely clear of the bodywork, it leaves a little carbon deposit on the bodywork. Just clean it off when you wash the car.

unless its an obscene amount, Vtec engines naturally burn a bit of oil.

that is the rich ness of your exhaust leaving its mark on the bumper, i had that problem but then i put on a different muffler with longer tips so the black stuff clears the back bumper instead of collecting on it

You hit VTEC in the bathroom? Is that how they call it these days? "I just VTEC'd in the bathroom"

Then you are like one in a million lol. Everyone I've ever met with an H22 has the black soot on their bumper.... they just run rich and burn a bit of oil, especially in vtec.

Nothing to worry about, you'd rather run rich than lean anyway...

i / h / e = black bumper

it's the mark of a modified h22, you need to tune your ride, you'll get a a little power and better gas mileage, plus less black smoke
