At my place of work we have all the tricks and tools, and yet I still have a musty smell on start up of my E92. My next trick will be taking out the dash and blasting the AC condensor clean. Ive done the rest. Steam treatment, Ionizer, Carpets and headliner cleaning, vent cleaning. Im not even sure mine was smoked in but at start up its rank, then its clean and clear.

I smoke a lot in my car and my steps were extremely simple to get rid of the smell... I used leather cleaner/conditioner from smart wax with trim dressing from smart wax for all the leather and trims, I used fabreeze carpet powder on the floors and mats, vaccumed and sprayed fabreeze on the carpet. I left the windows open for an hour or so and the smell was completely gone. P.S. spray the headliner as well. Your car will smell like a fresh car with a hint of fragrances

It really is. You can read up all you want about how to please a woman, you can look at all the diagrams in the world, but just like the clitoris, you won't know what the hell an apex is before you actually find it.

I heard if you cut an apple in half and leave it in the car overnight that will get rid of any odor.

I smoke in my car all the time. On the other hand i clean it inside and out atleast once a week as in vac, condition leather and so on. Took it to bmw to trade it and they didnt notice any smell. Take care of your shit and it wont smell like shit. It is possible to smoke in the car and it not smell. Also it is garage kept with windows rolled down every night
