My Ride: 03 e46 325xi
Crayon-smelling interior?

I just got my 03 325xi and I adore it. It's 9 years old, so obviously it's not brand new, but even after Febreze and carfresheners galore, my interior kind of smells like crayons. Sort of a waxy, not unpleasant smell which I don't even notice but my friends and my mother do. I'm thinking the previous owner had little kids and may have had crayons in the car that melted, but I can't find any stains or wax residue.

What can I do to clean the smell out? Is this just a normal smell for the leather to get after so long?

Also, what is the best product to clean cloudy headlights?
