Just got our D180 velar 10 days ago and only drove less than 400 km so far including highways , standard roads and traffic jams in Paris. Never had the smell issue. Apart from a warm rubber smell most probably from the tires after my first km on the highway. I suppose this is quite normal.

Got the FE 300D, driven it for about 5000 km and I still get that occasional burning smell, usually when it's raining. Any updates on the issue?

Hello

First post.
I have an issue with a diesel like smell entering the cabin. I have FE 300D, now at 1900 miles and the smell seems to be getting worse. I did initially think it was new car smell.
Smell seems worse in stop start traffic, but I think it is there all the time! On long journeys makes me feel ill. Passengers have noticed it as well.
Anyone experienced this?
Thanks

Could be injector seal, exhaust seal. I’d take it back in ASAP.

I have a similar problem and also a noise which sounds like a brake caliper dragging. Burning smell comes from the NSF wheel area and is only noticeable when driving slowly around town. Car has now done 4100 miles so unlikely to be new car burn in. Anyone noticed something similar?
Dealer not much help so far.

@sierrafoxtrott - Sounds like the same problem as I have. It's not constant though, and I can't seem to figure otu what triggers it. Usually lasts about 5-10 min and then stops again. Haven't had in in the last two weeks, still hoping for it to disappear. I'm at 5000km, FE D300.
