G30 (2017 - Current)
The next generation 5 Series, chassis code G30, arrives at dealers in February 2017. Looking like a scaled down 7 Series and riding on the CLAR platform, the new 5 Series will have a focus on lightweight and sporty performance. Engines options will come from BMW's new B family for the 530 and 540 and a turbocharged V8 for the M550i. Read more about the 2017 5 Series

Wine Spill in Trunk

I had a bottle of white wine break in my trunk. Sigh. The liquor store did not pack the case correctly and two bottles clanked together. The carpet and press whatever it is under it was soaked. I hit the carpet with a carpet cleaner but not much I can do with the material under it (other than Febreze). Bottom line, it smells like stale old wine. :-(

A replacement floor is about $320 at BMW Parts Direct. Any other ideas for cleaning and destinking the existing one?

Thanks (and sorry for the whine )

I use Hoover SteamVac Plus Carpet Cleaner with Clean Surge - F5914901NC - regularly in the house, usually on the vinyl floors - kitchen, scullery, bathroom.

Last year I had a DEF urea water solution spill while traveling. It dried to crystals before I noticed. So I flushed and vacuumed, flushed with water and vacuumed.

The same action will cure your wine odor problem. I keep a plastic storage tub in the luggage compartment for wet stuff now.

I dumped a slow cooker full of wienies swimming in bbq sauce in the trunk of my 2015. I tried everything and could not get the smell out. Took it to my detailer, he worked some magic and good as new. Only cost me $50.

Detailer did an awesome job today. Can't notice the smell. Also added a car deodorizer thingy in the trunk. I think I may be good. And it only cost $20!!!

Thank your lucky stars the liquid did not get to the electronics under the floor. A couple years back a guy on here had one of those huge water-cooler-size bottles of Poland Springs drown his electronics. IIRC it was close to a $10,000 repair bill.

+1. I got a nice one from weathertech that fits perfectly, even has a roll out piece to protect the bumper when desired.
