just some left over plastic or what have that may have fallen on the catalytic convertor, or maybe some maye have fallen into the throttle body and it is just now, burning off. if you have a new car, then yes it'll smell for a bit, no worries matey...

Is bigger than yours.


I've got over 3400 miles on my RS and I still get a stank when I park in the garage... I just figure it's a 'wet-dog' smell... it's going to happen and you can't do anything about it.

I'm about to hit 10,000 miles within a day or two on my MY01 RS, and burning smell is finally almost gone. I still smell it sometimes going reverse, though.
