Glue/Solvent smell, usually when coming to a stop?

    Hey folks,

    We took a 1000 mile road trip over the last couple of weeks, some of which was through 100+ degree weather (supercharging at those temps too). One thing my wife and I noticed is that when coming off the freeway to a light or a stop, we'd both smell something kinda like nail polish remover (or more like superglue maybe? definitely a sweet, chemical odor). We searched the car for anything that might have spilled and found nothing, and it really seems to correspond with changing from hard driving to city streets. Any ideas?
