Does all R32 GTRs with standard interior make a characteristic smell? There is is this strange smell I cant really describe it, it comes back after driving, its a rather damp smell but thats about it.

Check your boot and spare wheel well, water leaks in badly round the tail lights. My thing was stinking, had to remove all the boot carpets, linings etc to allow them to dry out. Clear silicone sealant stopped the leak at the tail lights.

It did smell like some sweaty old fat gits ar5e crack too :chuckle:

Hope this helps

ahahhaha

So the R32 should really have no smell at all interior wise? Well that's what I wanted to know.

I will check the boot, althought last time I checked it was dry and thats the only part of the interior that didnt smell.

Gotta track this annoying smell down, I've spent about £15 on various air fresheners and shake & vac. I would go for a full valet but would be gutted to have spent £70 and find the smell come back.

Maybe it could be the 0S Giken twin plate clutch? Do they emit any smells? :)

Could be the air vents and hoses. You can get a treatment for your air con that kills the fungus inside the system.

My R34 has a very distinctive smell, it's NOT bad, just different...I like it. I just open the doos and I get a whiff...still have no Idea what it is, but the car can sit for days with the windows open and it's still there!

I need to go smell my car!!!:wavey:

That could be it, do you have any links to anyone who sells this treatment?
I think most air-con specialists do it. Get the Yellow pages out and let your fingers do the walking my friend :chuckle:
