just get a power wire brush and go to town

haha. i've never seen anything like that before. i saw the pic, read the first sentance and laughed. i can imagine being like "wtf is this smell?!?!" and then weeks later you find out... and of all things, it's a ****ing bag burning underneath your car.

A few years back a plastic bag like that landed on the front intercooler of a WRC car during a race. It blocked all the cooling air flow and was soon melted in place. That car didn't last long.

hahahahahahahahahaha, hahahaha, ok, thats some funny stuff, lol. I laughed so hard... I was thinking this thread is going to be interesting to open... Paper or Plastic, ive never known anyone before that has had that happen to them, hahaha. Sorry man, but thats funny. Goodluck getting it off, I would use the wire brush or something... maybe a scrapper of some sort? putty knife?

lmao!! glad you could all get a kick out of it like i did.. at first i tried scraping and sanding and chizeling it down but nothing.. i could torch it off but im too lazy.. im just going to let it burn off and live with the faint odor

even when there is nothing wrong with my audi there is still something else

^^^ that sucks man, that smell would annoy the crap out of me. Maybe carry around a can of that smelly spray freshner, like you use in a house. I dunno, just trying to help you through the process if youre gonna let if burn off. Maybe run your car for a few hours outside..?
