    Ive decided to give the 'air con bomb' a go, as ive noticed a slight nasty smell in my car.

    Can anyone recommend any specific brands? From some quick googling it seems to be a simple enough procedure, with instructions and the best location to place the bomb varying greatly.

    I've read its best to remove your pollon/cabin filter first?

    If anyone could share any advice before I do this for the first time, that would be super appreciated!

    I would quite like one with some type of anti bacterial element too it rather than a glorified air freshener if that makes sense.

    Thanks.

    Unpleasant smells are often associated with a dirty/contaminated pollen/cabin filter

    Indeed and especially in dense built-up cities like London. It's recommended you change the pollen filter yearly but strangely enough Audi treats it as a major service item.

    On recommendation from @samisnake I recently switched to the Frecious Plus (see https://www.frecious-plus.com/en). The old one I had was less than 7 months old but already had lots particles and dust in the wedges. For less than a tenner a yearly change is a no brainer.

    Thanks guys.

    New cabin filter was put in about a month ago during a service.
