2007 Mini Cooper S: Stink Bomb

April 15, 2008

2007 Mini Cooper S

Haven't driven the Mini Cooper S in a while. Jumped in last night and the previous driver had left the A/C on full blast. I got hit in the face with a musty, stinky, yucky smell.

It was like "feet wrapped in leathery burnt bacon."
(If you get that pseudo-Star Wars reference you win a gold star.)

It took a good five minutes for it to clear up...

Haven't smelled it since. I'm assuming because the A/C was used so much over the hot weekend, that condensation built up in the vents and got funky. Then it cleared itself out.
