My 06' coupe seems to have a burning smell from under the car when I have the windows rolled down and going slow. Car has 11,000mi . I took it to dealer and was told its normal for these cars since the exhaust is close to underbody. They said that is why the console gets hot too. Is this true ??

Console getting hot, yes.
Burning smell, no?
I assume you don't have headers w/out cats?

I get a burning smell when I do some brief spirited driving, but otherwise no.
Had this. Simple. You ran over some plastic bags and they are caught on your muffler pipes and the remains are burning off on the pipes. You need to clean them. Put the car on a hoist and check it out.

Good luck.
