I don't know what is worse. The cigarette butts or the sheepskin seat cover.

Poor M3.....I wish we could rescue it.......give it a nice bath, maybe a little leather cleaner and conditioner (check out the arm rest!), and vacuum up the ashes.....

Must smell nice in there - between the cigs and the spilled food/coffee...

Even a good detail won't get rid of the stench.

I'd like to take my foot and shove it up who ever owns the car's ass and then take the car and detail it thoroughly and give it new carpet/seats/steeringwheel/trim and it'll be brand new! There are some chemicals out there that can take out grease smells from fried food and cigarettes. People like this don't deserve a car like that or any car and deserve to ride the bus.

I'll take this car even if there's crap in and smell like weed. Some vacuuming, a few good wipes, and a few sprays of Febreeze and the car will smell like new(Febreeze-style).

I like it. The owner doesn't litter and doesn't throw the cigarettes out the window. The person is also very careful to not have the seats smell by using the sheepskins. The person's girlfriend or boyfriend is also very careful with the cigarette butts. Note that there are two types of cigarettes....filtered and unfiltered, so there are two people who smoke in the car. It's their car so I guess they can do whatever they want in it. Is it visually any worse than seeing an M3 that's been lowered about 6", with a very loud exhaust, and an even louder stereo and the person driving around with their wrist at 12 o'clock hanging over the steering wheel and the gangsta lean to the right. Now that I find offensive.

The Badge acts as a dam to prevent overflow of ashes . . . pretty clever . . .

The owner of that car needs to be slapped. An M3 doesn't deserve to be treated like that.

Ok Batman, nice detective work there. But don't some people snap the filter off to get the 'full effect' of the cigarette?

And as far as not being a litter bug, i'd think dropping the top and letting wind do it's thing would clean a few things out of his cabin
