If one must die from vapors eminating from his new Porsche's interior, so be it. There are far worse ways to die.

In fact, this just went to the top of my list of preferred ways to leave this earth.

Alright...I will be honest...I actually had massive headaches in my car with the top up until the new car smell went away. I solved the problem by driving with the top down. The crap on my windshield went away with the vapors also.

LOL!

I bought mine pre-owned so the new car smell had pretty much left. The seller did me the "favor" of spraying the cabin with Ozium. That took weeks to get rid of, and until it disappeared, was, in my opinion, one of the "far worse ways to die" of which friend Randall spake.
