Anyone else smoke in their car and find this annoying? I can not blow the smoke simply out the window!

By the way, what is "WK2" stand for -- I don't get it! (sorry!)
The cigarette thing is part of a plot by the guv't to get you to stop smoking.
You might want to try a set of Weathertech air deflectors...

The wk2 is the second generation of the wk. Not sure why it didn't get its own initials as opposed to a number--maybe they were running out of initials.

The initials aren't in alpha order either, as the original GC was the ZJ.

Possibly more important if you don't intend to drive the wheels off of it, the trade in/resale price tends to go into the toilet on smoker's cars.

When I used to smoke in my cars, you would have had no idea. Traded more than a couple in without any thought of it.

It's all about being careful as well as managing airflow so that the smoke goes right out the window.

That being said, other than cutting back for my own good, the other reason I stopped smoking in the car was to prevent any passengers from doing it. The only times I ever had to repair a burn were from a passenger...

Smokers c'mon, stop throwing them out on the ground. It's your right to smoke, we can't stop you, so do it responsibly.

Some people just don't care about littering. I can't tell u how many times I get done surfing and see entire meals worth of trash just sitting in the sand. And a trash can is near....

Back to the topic, it does seem like car companies don't care about smokers anymore.

I can tell a car that has been smoked in a mile away. The smell they can usually cover up but the color on all the interior parts changes from it.

I am not a smoker and I can not stand being around it (no offence anyone and I keep my distance where possible). My wife also has some lung issues which are extremely sensitive to it.

Now saying all that and the Butts comment... I used to drive my bosses car all the time when he was a smoker (audi A4, JGC, Exploder) and it never smelled like anything. He too did ventilation management and put the buts in a can and took them out of the car with him. He never liked the smell either.... I have been in cars that were smoked in once and I could tell but not his. So I do believe it is possible to hide, just difficult.
