Stinks in cabin while stopped

Sun Dec 16, 2018 8:37 pm

Hi Everyone,

Bit of an emergency!!

Just bought a 2006 BMW X3 2.0D manual.

Seemed fine on its first drive back home.

But just started it today and I could smell a strong burning dirty smell in the cabin. Not sure why it's started now. Just done a 200mile journey in it to London as I had other choice and when I stopped at services, again I could smell a strong smell. Just got this car so don't know much about typical issues with it. Anyone got any ideas or tips on how to diagnose it.

Thanks Ryan
