    Anyone else got one of these... went for white which is apparently pine/orange scent.

    It had a whiff of disinfectant about it initially, but quite like it now!

    White looks good - I had a red one and it just smelt like plastic so I gave it to my lad to play with.

    Never had a car 'smellies' in any of my cars......Brings back very bad memories of when I was a kid in my dad's car....The combination of the 'traffick light' car scents [​IMG] and cigarettes. I would manage 10 or so miles before the innevitable........:puke2:

    Haha I remember those traffic lights !

    My missus has one of those magic tree rip offs in the shape of a huge frog swinging from her rear view mirror - came free with a silver valet at the hand car wash. I can't tell you how annoying it is swinging from side to side !!

    I've got the black one but the smell didn't last very long. Will get a different colour when I replace it.

    I bought 4 of these last September http://www.audi-sport.net/xf/threads/made-to-measure.253661/ I'm just about to change one out and put the third one in!!! I was going to do it a few weeks back until a friend got in the car and said "Ohh smell cherry bake wells"...so it was still going, I've just gotten used to the smell.

    I can't stand air fresheners. If my car stank of stale fags and wet dog I'd still not put one in it!

    Those Feu Orange air fresheners sell for a hell of a lot nowadays! Apparently people like(d) them quite a lot :frowning:

    You can see previous selling prices on eBay here - £10 for a used, empty one!?

    That's a great idea, as mine obviously smell of rose petals mixed with lavender water. :D

    Was very tempted to buy a Gecko when I was in my dealer yesterday. They had them conveniently placed on the parts counter almost in the same way chewing gum would be in a petrol station

    Prob try the yellow or white next so that it contrasts with the red vents.

    Rob, I'm gettin seriously worried about you??!! lol

    Air-fresheners = clutter and therefore have no place in my car whatsoever........................as always your mileage (or gecko, whatever the **** you're dangling) may vary.......................:whistle2:

    Gliptone is the best car scent in the known universe :)

    Accidentally clicked that link, then accidentally ordered a yellow one. :blush: Will try it out in the office at work before deciding if I want to have it in the S3.

    If I sit it on my desk, I can point it towards anyone sitting opposite that happens to be a bit irritating, and it might make them feel a bit uneasy. :D
