Cigarette butt ???

I changed my air filter the other day and I found a cigarette butt in the air box!

The funny thing is that I still have the snorkel attached. I must admit that I am surprised the butt was able to negotiate the upward turn of the snork.

This car must really suck air!

LOL. I found the same thing a couple days ago! I started to blame my mechanic for this, but it now makes sense. I must have flicked it out too low. Okay, no more smoking in my car.

This is aknown cause for boxsters catching on fire. Plus, cig burns on the carpet and seat just aren't appealing. Not to mention the smell. I couldn't bring myself to smoke in my baby.

Have you ever cleaned out the front radiator vents???

Yearly I vacum out at least 10 cig butts per side (WTH)

It's funny what those front "Leaf Catchers" can pick up
