I've been looking at a 2007 Cayman S at Leith Porsche in Cary, NC on autotrader. It has all the options and colors I want. The only problem is that the car's previous owner was a smoker. The sales rep. told me it still has a residual ozone smell from the detailer's treatment. I didn't go into much more detail with him at the time since I pretty much lost interest at that point. Since that conversation last week, I've been doing some research about how to get rid of cigarette smoke in cars. From what I've learned and professionals I've talked to, it's a challenge, but can be done in about 95% of cases. A prof. detailer for Lambo./Maserati in STL I talked to said that cigar smoke will never be eliminated but there are ozone treatments and bombs that are effective in eliminating cigarette smoke.
If anyone near Cary, NC is interested, I'd like to have someone look at the car for me and take a good wiff inside. The ozone smell should go away in time and with some detailing. My concern is with it's effectiveness in this cases.
