      The owner didn't want the guy to remove any of the interior during the cleanup? What a retard. That car is probably still full of mold.

      Looks like someone got their head blown off getting into the car.

      Im a bit confused though. They both have the same VIN number but the IAA listing looks like it's an upcoming auction (04/17/12).

      The owner is probably going to sell it/ trade it in very soon anyway.

      I'd buy it for the right price. That type of stuff doesn't really bother me. I cleaned up my fair share of human body fluids/waste when I cleaned carpets.

      You could never live with the smell....never. And it will never come out.

      That's true, you can NEVER get the smell out.

      The only way would be to strip the ENTIRE interior, clean the interior SHELL, and replace the interior.

      Oh yeah, the interior would be stripped, cleaned and replaced. Like I said though, for the right price.

      I do not understand why some coupes make the grade and others do not. Everyone knows, for instance, that the Corrado was as tasty as an East End prize fighter with the looks of a Benetti super-yacht. The four-cylinder was good, but the VR6 was about as close as you could get to Ferraridom without buying a Ferrari. And what happened? You all went to the pub instead. -Jeremy Clarkson-

      I've been scouring, still nothing. If it was a suicide, nothing to report. Plus, we're dealing with FL here...so lots of crap to sift through.

      When I bought my brand new 2011 135i in 2010, we had also adopted a third dog (an elderly rescue dog).

      We had just switched his food to organic food made for elderly dogs. WIth the food switch, he got diahhrea . . . you see where this is going . . .

      So I was driving him to a vet appointment when the car had ~300 miles on it. I had him strapped into the back seat. All of the suddent he farted.

      It was the worst fart that I had ever smelled. So I rolled down the windows. Rolled them back up. The smell got worse. I realized that it was no fart. At this point, I was shocked that a 10-pound 12-year-old dachshund was able to make such a horrendous stink.

      We get to the vet. I look in the back seat. EXPLOSIVE LIQUID SH I T covering the seat and the entire back of my car. And it was horrendous. It was bad-Mexican-food bad.

      So the vet is nice enough to give me cleaning solution, etc. I spend 60 minutes wiping everything down. It's squeaky clean.

      I drive the dog home. The next morning, I get in the car for work, and the smell lingers. Stupidly, I park the car in the Nevada sun. I get back in teh car, it reeks.

      I go home, scrub down EVERY THING IN THE CAR with Nature's miracle, then lysol, then leather conditioner.

      The next day, the smell returns.

      It turns out that a few ounces of liquid SH ! T poured through the holes in the back seats used for clipping in a child seats and had sunk into the spongey sound-deadening material undeneatht he rear seats.

      SO i removed the rear seats. Cleaned the spongy material day after day after day.

      The smell kept returning on hot days.

      So finally, I just took garden sheers and cut the sound deadening material completely out of the rear of my brand new BMW.

      Smell gone. More exhaust note. All was well.

      All you need to do is call the IAA and ask. And the story is....
