Dude, that's part of the inspection II replacement list.

Have you done your inspection? I believe there are supposed to be done around 60K miles?

oil and filter
spark plugs
air filter
cabin filter
some other stuff I'm forgetting - you can search on it - easy DIY - save some $$

It wasnt like a disgusting smell it, As all cars have a unique smell to them wether it be from the plastics, the leather etc mine just had this smell and I wanted to know what was causing it. It definitely wasn't noticeable as a bad smell just a smell.

Dealer did mine today, I didn't even think of asking. It was part of routine maintenance oil change. They also replaced my drive belt. All free with extended maintenance. I am beginning to think it's going to be better than a wash for me, I still have 23+ months and 60k miles to go on it.
