Angry All finished. What do I do now?

Yes people, one and all, the new car smell is finished in my car
At least tonight there wasn't any. Maybe a little in the morning I'm hoping. So what can I do now?

Any recommendations? (I know there will be plenty of wise cracks and silly advice, but I'm up for them)

By the way, the 328i is FAST!!!!!

I use a car perfume from an Italian skin care company called L'Erbolario. It is actually smells much better than the general stuff you for cars. I've had my car about the same length of time as you and people still tell me it smells like a new car

Here's the website http://www.primexint.com.au/08products/home/car.shtml
I use the mayflower scent in the car which (and I have no idea why) people associate it with a new car smell.

Thanks Mike, I've sent an email requesting product location. How long does a sachet/box last?

brace yourselves

might have to brace ourselves here for the .... how vain......grow up comments. ( refer "it happened four times today" thread).

my recommendation on keeping a new car smell is - fart less LOL

nothing kills the smell more

seriously ....I have been impressed by how low that new car scent is in the BMW compared to other marques.

Impressed? I want more NCS. Maybe they have the windows open in the ship - the car windows, not the ship's widows.

I use this found it better than masking the smell, it leaves a new car smell scent. Got it pretty cheap too 10 bucks last forever.

I'm still on the same sachet since I got the car and it is still going strong.

But yeah nothing beats simply buying a new 328i

How long have you had the car?

Fwiw in my 2nd car i had a sunroof and think that was the culprit behind the fast disappearing new car smell as i open it a lot.

JB1 sounds very tempting, especially after my 100% positive experience since Dec '09 with their Power Box in the E90.

Still have to run the car in first. But yep, performance mod will happen.
