    You got aircon? If so you can buy a bacterial cleaner to clean it. You changed your pollen filter as well?

    Thats your problem then. You should use it every now again to clean it. And the pollen filter is behind the glove box.

    Naaaah, uses naff all. On mine you can see how much fuel is being used in ml/s. I've had it at idle, then whacked the aircon on full at its coldest. Hardly made a difference.

    Turning all the lights on including my xenons and the heated seats made a bit more of a difference.

    best to use for atleast 15mins per week wether hot or cold. the smell is bacteria growing in your pipes. the pipes get damp after use and keeping air flowing etc etc with air con on eliminates this prob.
