2000 Audi A6 quattro. Passenger compartment has a persistant and odd odor constantly. It is not a moisture or mold smell nor an oil or gas smell. Almost as if from the upholstery. Anything to do with the disallowance of certain leathers put on the Audi cars in germany in 2000 and before and disallowed after that?
