Burning oil smell isnít at all similar to burning clutch smell though. Brake pads can smell like burning clutch though. Maybe there is a stuck caliper. Is one wheel dusting excessively?

No Way! He loves going in the orange car, he consistently picked it over the boring black Mazda we used to have. Now we have a yellow Si as our second car and it's about even.

Thanks again - enjoy your "smell-free" FR-S!
