    I was surprised no one said that. I have always loved the smell of gas. I dont know what it is, I just like it.

    Off topics, but how many of these won't kill you if you inhale deeply?

    I'll go with new leather. Just had my 328 redone and it has transformed the car (the aroma being a big part of it).

    I saw your re-do thread and could smell the leather from here, if I held my head just right. There was also a faint aroma of charred wood and brush on the wind, not sure how to explain that...

    exciting....the smell of a birdcage maserati as it passes you [me actually] thru 5 at monterey....kind of an exotic blend of fuel, rubber and mostly a strong smell of really hot clutch material.....

    mellow...opening the rear body section of a 550 spyder that hasn't run in several months...a thin film of cold castrol r all over the engine and surroundings.

    most unique to a particular car....the smell of a post race grand prix bugatti.
