My new Elise and the others that I have sat in have a strong solvent or adhesive smell. Does anybody know how to get rid of the smell? The car is in the garage with the windows down.
Thanks.

It goes away after a week or two. Its the "new car smell" from the plastics and vinyl.

Maybe you need to take the car outside and drive it to air it out :)

There'a huge lump of brand-spanking-new fibreglass sitting in your garage, happily releasing fumes from the resin.. What did you think it would smell like?

Bye, Arno.

That is fiberglass resin smell and after 8 weeks my car still has it. Lotus cologne to me! After it goes away I will have to brush resin on every few weeks.

Yep, I'm going to miss that smell when it wears off :D But then I like the smell of new tyres too. My wife thinks I'm mad, so I probably am :p
