    Get mechanic smell out of XJ8

    Any tips on how to get the smell of my mechanic out of my Jag? I think he test drove the car a bit before and after the repairs and I’d like to go on a date in this thing. Now it reeks of oil and general shop smells. Speed Test Scrabble Word Finder Solitaire Anyone have tips on getting rid of the smell that doesn’t involve cans of funk from the corner gas station? I prefer my cars smell like wood and leather or nothing at all. Please don’t suggest little trees or febreze.
    Will I have to leave the car in the garage with the windows down for weeks? Lol

    Clean the seats with leather cleaner that will give you back the leather smell
    As for the wood smell not sure maybe saw up a few bits of pine and hide them behind the seats ? na just kidding on that one

    Probably drove it with dirty hands, so do the steering wheel too.

    This particular forum is not for stuff like your query, its for news items from Jaguar cars and others. Why not move your post to the relevant XJ saloon forum ?

    I have requested forum admin to move it no need for the OP to start a new thread
