Hello all,

I was searching for the substance which gives that nice smell in the cabin of the new cars or the 2nd hand cars which just left the showroom but I could not find it. Any one knows which mark or sort is it :?:.
Greetings

Robert

Volvo still make the least toxic car when it comes to solvents etc

No doubt, but it did backfire when they moved to degreasing by water wash rather than solvents. Like everything else, you have to balance the advantages and disadvantages of whatever actions you take. Too extreme a dose of anything can be bad for you. Remember Paracelsus - "all things are poisonous, it is only the dose which decides whether or not they will poison you".

The C class with leather seats 3 years old always smells like a Harrods wallet. The Golf 6 months old smells like the inside of a Sumo wrestlers jock strap.

I am sure we can find an application somewhere to help with that - you could go down in history Malcolm! ;):rolleyes:

It would bring a whole new meaning to the concept of testing parts to destruction! :rolleyes:

I would expect your failure rate to be in the "parts per million" region - but it might take us a while to prove that? :rolleyes:;)

I guess we need more volunteers for the other arm of the trial?

Knowing my luck, I'd be on placebos. :(

I love the smell of the leather in new cars :cool:[/QUOTE


I've got a thing about leather, it does funny things to me and have to avoid it unless the mood is right .

My cars got cloth seats boo - hoo , probably just as well as I might not be able to drive in a straight line .:Oops::shock:
