I'm actually very serious about it.  My friend has a 1986 5000CS Turbo Quattro that by the smell 
could be nothing other than a mid-80s Audi.  Same thing goes for my friend with his 94 BMW 540i.  
All older (mid to late 80s..early 90s..etc) BMWs smell the same.

Strangely, my 540i (1998 model) doesn't really have a smell.  My old 1989 405 Mi16 definately 
smelled like a Peugeot.  

Your nose must not be very sensitive. <g>
